HP Link To Windows

The new connectivity software is known as Link to Windows. I have
been very pleased with this after some initial problems. I tried to
use SyncNGo to export/import some databases. I discovered that you
must have a corresponding target file on the desktop with field names,
or if you are importing into the ogo, you must design an empty database
with the field names you wish.

I am also using the HP PIM, and have found some glitches. If you
import an event (start time = end time = NONE) it does not always
appear at the top of the day (before 12:00AM). I have been able to
move them by deleting the time, and saving, but this is not consistent.

I also saw a weird effect if I created an event that repeated daily.
Sometimes it would appear with an end date < start date. Hence it
would appear on every day in the calendar. I had to delete the original
and re-enter for it to work.

I previously commented on my success in linking directly with the SRAM
card. I keep all my files in the C:\geoworks\document directory. I
used a binary file editor to change all references to b:\geoworks to
C:\geoworks. I used win95 explorer to search all the files for
"b:\geoworks" and then went in and changed them.

One last tip. Be sure the application on the ogo is closed ( Fn-F3 )
or the latest file will not be accessed.
