    I often receive e-mails with attached pdf-files on my Treo 600. But I can't open these attached pdf-files with the Adobe Reader for Palm. Is there anybody who can give me a hint to solve the problem?

    Thanks.

    PDF's need to be synced with the Adobe Reader for Palm on the PC. There is no native pdf reader for the Treo. After being sync'ed you can read them

    Documents to Go (dataviz.com) will read PDF (Adobe Acrobat) files, along with Word, Excel and others.

    not natively, they have to go through a conversion first.

    DocsToGo 7 supposedly supports text based PDF attachments. I have this app but haven't tried it. I'll test it when I have time and report back.

    Just tried it. No, DocsToGo 7 CANNOT open PDF attachments. How disappointing.

    I specifically purchased Docs To Go 7 because of it's claims to be able to support .pdf attachments. I was also very disappointed.

    How do you "sync with the Adobe Reader for Palm"? I will go searching for that product. It is an extra step though, uggghhhh.

    Not only is it another step, but you have to stop by your PC before you can read them. To start looking go to www.adobe.com

    Talk about being behind the times. This should be addressed by P1 right now. If they want the Treo to be taken as a serious business tool it should be able to read a simple pdf file natively. I believe the Sony Clie PDA's had an application that was able to do this called Picsel.

    Adobe used to have a service where you could email the pdf attachment to them and it would return to you as a text file. But I just tried it last week and it didn't work.
