    I have 5 years worth of appointments in my calendar and about 3,400 entries. I probably don't need them all but they are there.

    My CalendarDB-PDa file is 3.55 Meg.

    Anyone else have that many records and a smaller file? Is there a way to optimize this short of archiving old events? And how would you recommend archiving the old events?

    I have nowhere near that many items - I purge mine once a year or so, keeping the last 18 months' worth. Datebk5 provides a Purge function for exactly such an occasion, and it will also save your purged items into a History database if you want to keep them around.

    Mine is about half that both in size and number of entries. If you are on Sprint, hopefully the patch they release will help. I don't know of a way to shrink it beyond deleting events.

    Datebk has a manual?!

    Learned to use it on my own :-)

    So is this History database usable only on the palm? How much space does it take up?

    The manual for DateBk5 is HUGE! I've been using DateBk since the DakeBk3 days but the manual always turns up a new feature for me.

    The manual alone is worth $25 :-)

    First, the way you ask the question makes me wonder if you realize that Datebk5 doesn't have it's own database. It uses the same database as the built-in calendar app uses. Second, there's really no way to make it smaller without deleting records.

    Mine was large also. To save space I purged and only kept a years worth. 2180 records and just a little over 1 Mb is what I have now.
