Default Viewing Lotus 123 spreadsheet files on Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Folks,
Does anyone know how to view Lotus 123 spreedsheet files on a Blackberry. It seems kind of strange that the BB's have direct Lotus Notes Email server support but you can't view a simple Lotus 123 data file.

Hardware is BB 8700r (rogers) , software version 4.1

Excel works fine
Word works fine
Wordperfect works fine
.jpg Pictures works fine
LOTUS does not work !

All of our Sales price lists are done on Lotus and our entire sales team is Lotus trained. And the BB's have such a tight relationship with Lotus Notes, that this stuff should work.

Any ideas ?

I guess this question remains unanswered? This would be a major selling point to my company for going with a BES, and they would be more interested in more Blackberry's as well. As it is, the Blackberry is incapable of taking pictures, which is very important to a construction company, for the sake of proving work done, etc, and attaching pictures to our applications, as well as more internet features like support of Adobe Flash, etc. I realize the Pearl is about to debut, but we're not about to switch, or begin using T-Mobile. Any other ideas for all the issues? I'm sure there's more, they just haven't been uncovered. For the purpose of simple email, it works great, and I realize what it has been designed for, however, the Windows Mobile devices are looking more and more enticing as they offer everything BB does without the need for a BES. I'm sure they won't support Lotus either, and as far as I'm concerned, the company needs to come up to speed, but we need that support at least during our transition period.
