    I have the Treo 650, which I see has a field for birthdays. Until now I have used a custom field for birthdays, and used 'Birthdate 1.2' to set alarms for the birthdays (which btw is an awesome program!).

    How do I automatically move the custom field to the Birthday field - either in Outlook or in Palm (I assume if I manage to synch it from a Custom field to the Birthday field in Outlook, it will then on the next synch also appear in the Birthday field in the Contact list on the 650?).

    I have a lot(!) of birthdays registered and manual job would take hours.

    If you have your contacts already in Outlook you can export them to a csv file making sure that you export your custom field. You can then do one of the following:

    - Edit the csv file (using somthing like excel) to replace the birthday column with your custom field column THEN re-import the csv file (overwriting the existing contacts)
    - re-import the csv file BUT amend the field mapping so that your custom field is loaded into the birthday field.

    I was able to play around with this using a single dummy contact to test it without overwriting my normal contacts. It would probably be safer to try that to be sure that it does what you expect

    Yikes!! Sounds risky. But probably worth doing than changing them one by one in Outlook....
