    W97 Outlook -->Handspring<-- Mac Entourage X

    The subject line describes my hardware. The Handspring running Palm OS v. 3.52H2.0

    What I tried to do was to Sycronise my outlook data in my office PC with the Handspring (OK so far) and then my Handspring with my home Mac Entourage (Part of MS Office for the Mac - very similar to outlook) and got a nice merged database. Everything worked OK except for the contact lists.

    The next time I sycronised with my office PC I ended up with every (office PC) record duplicated! Some data had shifted between fields (i.e. from business address to home address) on its round trip journey from PC to Mac and back again.

    I've just begun to manually edit my outlook contact list to get it back to where I started from but I'm a little leary at trying this experiment again! My goal was to have all three syncronised - and, except for the contact list, this worked. Does anyone have any idea of where I went wrong and what I should be doing?

    merci beaucoup tlm!

    <img src=/S/ouch.gif border=0 alt=ouch width=15 height=15> Tough one. Obviously the field mappings are different as between your Windows Outlook and your Mac Outlook when it comes to those home and business addresses. I'm stabbing in the dark here, but can you check the settings of the Chapura conduit on both ends to make sure they're the same?

    Thanks for the suggestion Keely. Apparently MS is about to release their new conduit for Entourage X (I mistakenly indicated that I used X - I actually used it under OS 9). When I load and set that up I'll make sure the settings are compatiable <img src=/S/clever.gif border=0 alt=clever width=15 height=15>. Wish me luck. <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15>

    Let us know how it goes - lots of people would be more inclined to create a heterogenous PC if they had easy ways to keep on their info on the same page. There's nothing like being on the bleeding edge! <img src=/S/pcvmac.gif border=0 alt=pcvmac width=137 height=30>
