I found a few Excel like spreadsheets out there for the PDA, but only two that could handle password protected workbooks. I got the cheaper one since it did what I needed and is actually a lot better than I had expected. Can be found at http://www.z4soft.com/downloads/
For one that comes with a "Word" and "Powerpoint" part, had a better Excel, but at 3 times the price since you could not just buy one part, but if someone needed more they might look at SofMaker Office 2008 for CE. http://www.softmaker.com/english/ofpcomp_en.htm
So SPB Backup now for a true back-up and PTab to deal with Excel, I am all set.
I have an Excel spreadsheet that I routinely move from my PDA to my PC, since whart I keep in it is fairly sensitive I keep it password protected at the workbook level (highest).
I just upgraded from an iPaq 3650 (very old) to an iPaq 111 (fairly new) with Windows Mobile Office 6 and for the life of me I can't figure out how to use a password protected speardsheet on the PDA, just gives a warning message that the file is lock so it will not open it, not even ask me for the password?
Anyone know of a way through Excel to use locked workbooks?
I have the PDA passwork protected, and if I put a SD card in I would encrypt that, but still, if that sheet got loose somehow I want it protected itself, sounds like an odd feature for MS to remove...
Last question, any know of a way to move an older version of pocket excel to the PDA while if this feature is no longer supported in the new one?
PS -- Sorry if this has been asked and answred but I searched on several keywrod combinations and found nothing on the topic.
