Description tcblack 2005-01-11 18:07:38 UTC
Palm OS based PDA computers by default include a program for recording Expenses.
 Currently there is an ability to produce automated Expense Report Spreadsheets
for Microsoft Excel as well as Lotus Smartsuite's 123 Spreadsheet.

I would like a wizard that would import standard Palm OS Expense database and
generate an expense report from the PALM data.
An example can be found at:

One for requirements.

please attach one of the standard Palm OS Expense databases I guess it should be
pretty easy to write a macro that does the job (or maybe this isn't even
necessary). But if the database format is proprietary (no driver available) this
will be harder...

Ok, there are two options, the palm database format and a text (coma delimited?)
format.  I suppose launching the wizard would need to offer a browse dialog to
locate the database. 
I've enclosed both formats with a few test entries for your enjoyment. :-)

$ unzip
   skipping: expense.db              unsupported compression method 12
   skipping: expense.txt             unsupported compression method 12

Please use a stnadard compressin method (or no compression at all) and upload
again. Thanks.

Sorry about the wrong format, It's a standard ZIP (Well if winXP creates a
"standard" zip.
