For any of you Palm users out there, I need your help. I am considering a Palm purchase with the idea of using Docs-To-Go to edit Excel workbooks. My particular workbook has about 12 worksheets. My question is this: are you able to move from one worksheet to the other on the Palm, and can you do searches for data on each worksheet? Will the Palm do the basic functions on an Excel workbook as a computer would do? I need to know this in order to make a purchaase.

What about the searching on various worksheets? Is there the ability to do that. The reason I ask is that customers may be looking for something in our inventory and it would be much easier to have a Palm with me rather than my Powerbook.

You can search and edit your Excel workbooks on your Palm via Documents to go as long as your worksheet doesn't contain any functions that aren't supported by DtoG.

I've used the Windows version for quite a while and was quite happy with it. I installed the Mac version and found it quite buggy and -- more often than not -- would cause my hotsync sessions to crash.

Feh!

Hi, I use Documents To Go on the Palm and PC (have not installed on the Mac).
You can to basic editing but please remember that you will have to keep a copy of the .xls on your host computer.
You can move from one datasheet to another and do basic editing.
Please note that the Palm will be slower any operation (unless you have the latest Palm).

Overall, the DataViz is only a partial solution for me...

If it's just for Excel, an alternative might be to look into one of those database programs, like TinySheet, MobileDB or Pilot DB. Again the challenge will be finding one that works well with Mac. Good luck.
