    No, but I knew Dash Chang back in the day and used Microplan a bit on x80. I probably have a copy here somewhere.

    Wonder if that fancy Github toolkit can handle Multiplan files...

    It says it handles DOS Multiplan files, but nothing about CP/M Multiplan files.

    Recognized formats:

    Microsoft Works files:
    Word Processing v1-v2000: retrieve almost all content (except some pictures and some DOS's character encoding),
    Word Processing v5-8: retrieve almost all content,
    Spreadsheet v1-v2000: may retrieve cell's content with cell's format
    Database v1-v2000: may retrieve the main database's content but not the filters, frames, reports, ...
    Microsoft Write files: retrieve all content
    Microsoft Word for DOS files: retrieves all content. Style information, page numbers, line numbers are not recovered.
    Lotus Wk1-Wk4 and 123 files: retrieve cell's content with cell's format and some graphics.
    Microsoft Multiplan DOS v1-v3 files: retrieve cell's content.
    Quattro Pro Wq1-Wq2, Wb1-Wb3 files: retrieve cell's content with cell's format and some graphics.
    Quattro Pro qpw (v9) files: retrieve cell's content with cell's format and some graphics. This filter probably also works for some newest version of qwp files.
    For the CP/M Version it's easy to use the Transfer Option of Normal to read in *.MP files.
    Once a file is read in, change the Transfer Option to Symbolic.
    Then use Transfer Save to write out a File01.SLK

    Excel will read a .SLK file and create an .XLS

    Then Clear Multiplan with Transfer Clear.

    Repeat for the next 1xx files.

    That's Chang Labs MicroPlan spreadsheet, rather than Microsoft Multiplan. Just FYI.
