    Spreadsheet on a Palm

    Hello Everyone

    Does anyone use a spreadsheet on a Palm Pilot?

    I have a project to enter data through the palm pilot to a spreadsheet.
    I've never used a palm Pilot so I don't know what its capable of.

    What spreadsheet do you use?

    Abacus. It is GPL freeware, and there is a desktop version that is Java based that you can use to transfer data to the popular desktop formats.

    You can go with the commercial DataViz products that are supposed to be Excel on the Palm, but having looked at both, I see nothing in the commercial product that justifies paying for it with Abacus being free.

    I don't understand what you mean Rupert. Can you give me some more detail?

    Hi Rupert

    We're going to try MiniCalc from solutionsinhand.com. It's shareware so we can try before we buy.

    No I don't have a link for Abacus. Where can I find it?

    The Abacus spreadsheet for the Palm can be downloaded at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.pmdc.pt/abacus/>http://www.pmdc.pt/abacus/</A>. The page includes links for the desktop version also.

    I use quickoffice from cutting edge software. It is pricy at 39.95 but it does just about everything to include formulas. I think they will let you try before you buy. Check it out at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.cesinc.com>http://www.cesinc.com</A>

    So far the hot synching has been flawless(so far). It is lauded on most of the major palm web sites so others agree. Cost should be your only driving factor because I believe this is a sound product.
