Hi all

I have a TytnII syncing with microsoft exchange via USB (Activesync 4.5.0) to my laptop or direct push when not connected. Currently contacts, calendar, tasks and mail only.

I have 3 excel files on my laptop that I would like to duplicate on the phone and keep synchronised with the version on the laptop, but cannot work out whether this is possible and if so, how I go about it.

Can anyone igve me any clues? Preferably fairly idiot proof clues...

Cheers

Jimder

I could be wrong here but as far as I'm aware there is a way of doing this. Change the settings on your Activesync partnership so that 'Files' is set to synchronise - this will create a folder called 'Files' on the desktop of your PC. Any files you put into this folder should sync over to your TytnII. I've never actually done this myself so like I said, I could be wrong! :D

That is correct in principle Everton!

However, the location of the Synchronised Fiels folder is actually nested within My Documents, and will generally be called My Documents/'DeviceName' Synchronised Files (XP), or Users/'username'/Documents/'Documents on devicename' (Vista)

As explained, compatible files saved or copied into this folder will sync with the PPC (but not to the storage card).

A few words of warning- the PPC versionso of Excel and Work are very cut down from the PC versions; a lot of formatting is lost in the transfer from PC -> PPC and this formatting is not recovered on the sync back to the PC, so if you haev any complex documents, make sure you have backups safe on the PC in case of errors.

If you make a lot of use of the full formatting abilities of Word/Excel, and want these replicaed on the PPC, it may be worth lookign at Softmaker Office for Windows Mobile. This is a replacement for pocket word and pocket excel, and can replicate most of the formatting of the desktop programs. Is quite expensive though!
