Two options...

If you want it to automatically syncronize with the corresponding file on your computer, open ActiveSync and go tools->options. Just select what type of files you would like to sync. (I believe that Excel is included in the title "files," but it may have it's own option...been a while since I used it.)

If you would like to manually transfer one file at a time (or simply don't want to sync all of your documents), open "my computer" and then "mobile device." Once their, go to the loction of the file on your PDA, then copy-and-paste to the location you want it on your hard drive.

Just remember that Pocket Excel does not have all of the same abilities that Excel 2003 does, so some of the formatting will be lost when you transfer a file from your PC to your PDA. (Though the next version of Windows Mobile should help out a bit in that area.)

Hope this helps,
