I have large spreadsheets on my OGO but I broke them up into smaller
files. I actually like the small files (I had to get used to it) because
it's easier to find the data I need. I also have some files that I just

I don't know, but it's the one that works for me. Of course in Geocalc
you aren't limited to 64 x 64, but it's easy to move blocks of data on
the desktop and arrange it so it fits on the OGO.

Just the spreadsheets I mentioned above. I use my OGO to keep track of
about 200 student accounts in my high school band and choirs. I separate
the files alphabetically by name or by class.
I know these answers aren't quite what you're looking for, but I hope
this helps.
