I guys

Finally back, been busy over at the SPB forums...

I was asked today at work if an Excel worksheet that is protected be transfered to either a Harrier (PPC-6600) or the Apache (PPC-6700) and opened with the protection still intact? One of the staff tried it on his Harrier & I tried it on my Apache it will go to the SD card fine but when you try to open it states unable to open protected file (or something like that) is there a hack around this or a third party software that can enable our staff and clients to access these files via their PDA's as most like to be able to use them on the farm rather than their laptops...

Cheers

Jace

Hi Jace the following is straight from the windows mobile website. So unless there is some sort of third party app that can do it, it looks unlikely.


  • Protection settings. Most worksheet and workbook protection features are disabled but not removed. However, support for password protection has been removed. Workbooks that are password-protected or workbooks in which one or more worksheets are password-protected cannot be opened. You must remove the password protection in Excel on the PC and then synchronize to open the file on the device.

Actually Jace I just found an application that may do the job its called "SoftMaker Office for Pocket PCs 2006"

It says it can do the following

Compatibility

  • Reads and writes numerous file formats – PlanMaker for Windows, Excel for Windows 5.0 until 2003, ASCII, dBASE etc.

  • Direct document exchange with Microsoft Excel – no conversion required, no loss of formatting, including all Excel charts

  • Reads and writes password-protected Excel files

The website its on is called softmaker.com
I hope this helps the clients

Cheers Matt

Hey Matt

thanks for the 411, have been trying PlanMaker (& TextMaker) from  SoftMaker for a few weeks and find it to be by far good program a bit heavy on the memory side but other than that very good.

Advised our clients and they were just over the moon, so at the Nat Conference coming up your's truly is have a tech session on the Apache (possibly Harrier) as I have used both devices and currently have the Apache, I also have an Axim X51v (finally arrived after 3 weeks...phew...)

Cheers all

Good to be posting here again (been busy at SPB Club)

Jace
