    Searching The Lounge

    This post is a "gotcha" on myself and maybe a "tutorial" for other Loungers on the importance of searching The Lounge for answers to our own questions. I have long been a Palm PDA owner and user and since I DO NOT use the Office products, I've used the Palm Desktop software for my calendar, address book, memos and so on. I've been very satisfied with that software for several years. About a year ago I decided that I had a need to do some analysis of my calendar data for the past several years and wanted to EXPORT that data so I could do the analysis in an Open Office spreadsheet. No can do with the Palm Desktop software. Its only calendar export format is one that Open Office can't deal with and so, I opened <post:=668,633>post 668,633</post:> to seek help from other Loungers. As it turns out, I found my solution in a pretty inexpensive but very helful program called LinkeSOFT DIMEX Desktop Add-In for Calendar Import/Export. The Dimex program is an Add-On to Palm Desktop but I had forgotten that I even have it installed.

    This week, a year later, I want to again do some calendar analysis and have been scratching my head for a couple of days on how the <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> did I do this a year ago. I have the spreadsheet to "prove" that I did it, but no recollection of how I did so! Lounge searching to the rescue, since I knew I had asked the question here. Bingo, I found my old thread, remembered that I ALREADY have the addon installed and within minutes, had my 2008 analysis completed.

    If ya don't search The Lounge, there's no telling what ya might be missing! An ol' timer learns another lesson the hard way!
