    Palm Desktop to Outlook (XP)

    Dear all,

    I am using a Palm with Palm Desktop at the moment, but I want to change to an Outlook based system (SE P900).

    How do I get the data from Palm Desktop into Outlook (mainly the calendar).

    I can export from Palm a *.dba file, but how to import that into Outlook?

    Thanks in Advance

    Adding to Leif's information, the usual software bundled with Palm is Chapura Pocketmirror Standard, but check to be certain. From your Palm discs install Pocketmiror by telling the installation program to Sync with Outlook, then update PM from Chapura's website (later versions have better backup), all before you Sync to Outlook. On first Sync, all unmatched information will be copied from PDA to Outlook and vice versa, so that you don't really need to do any conversion, just let the PDA populate Outlook for you. (If you need more detail, post back.)

    Keep in mind Wolf, that Pocketmirror WILL sync outlook contacts, but will NOT let you keep Categories that you might have in Outlook contacts. For that I use KeyContacts http://www.chapura.com/keysuite_keycontacts.php

    If you use any categories in your Outlook contacts, it is a must have.
