What is an .IMP file?

.IMP is Improv Spreadsheet

Native spreadsheet file created by the Lotus Improv application; divides data, views of the data, and formulas into three segments, which is different than most spreadsheet applications and makes it difficult to transfer to more common applications like Excel.

Lotus Improv was a spreadsheet program released in 1991 for the NeXTSTEP platform and later released for Windows in 1993. It attempted to change how data in spreadsheets was stored in order to make editing more simple and accurate. The program was eventually discontinued in 1996 after Lotus was purchased by IBM.
