    I am interested in a treo but have a use in mind which I am unsure of. Can an excel file be edited in a treo device?

    Have a look at MiniCalc from

    http://www.solutionsinhand.com/

    It allows you to export Excel spreadsheets to Palm devices.

    Yes. Here are the main apps for editing excel files, in the order of my preference:

    1. OfficeSuite: http://www.mobi-systems.com/product-...6af2d10f6613e4

    2. Documents to Go: http://www.dataviz.com/products/docu...ndex_palm.html

    3. Quickoffice: http://www.quickoffice.com/palmos/index.html

    I don't think you can go past Dataviz apps. They are awesome. I use the excel spreadsheet and word constantly. I think I actually got mine free with my Treo 650.

    i agree, docs to go is the best i've used, and i too use excel and word daily. the prem pkg allows misc features that are necessary, ie. sorting

    123 to use too

    Would you care to offer your reasons for your preference?

    Both OfficeSuite and Docs to Go have very similar features. However, I give OfficeSuite the nod over Documents to Go for the following reasons:

    1. With OfficeSuite, you can zoom out to view and edit the entire page at a time. This helps in checking formatting, paragraphs, margins, etc. Can't do this with Docs to Go.

    2. OfficeSuite handles all TrueType fonts, which can be stored on the card. I copied EVERY TrueType font from my pc onto my card under the /fonts directory. I don't know how many I have, but I have a lot of options. OfficeSuite can access and use all of those fonts when needed.

    3. I have found Docs to Go kind of buggy in the past, with problems syncing files and resets. I haven't encountered any problems (yet) with OfficeSuite.

    4. When using Documents to Go v6, it was a hassle to send a file via efax, and I needed to follow a work-around to get documents faxed. (I don't know if this has changed in version 7). With OfficeSuite, it works like it should. Just select the file/send option and it attaches the file in proper format for efax.

    5. I like the look and feel a bit better than Docs to Go.

    6. OfficeSuite has an FTP option to store files on-line, and Mobi-systems offers free ftp storage. I haven't tried it out yet, so I don't know how it works.

    Yeah, I saw your separate post. Thanks for the response. Trialing OfficeSuite will be a weekend project. I hope there is much improvement over QuickOffice!
