Pay for software?  I say no!

You actually have two options.  Microsoft actually has an excel viewer.  I did a quick google search and here's a link to the 2003 viewer:

Also, here's one for 2007:

Another option is open office (  This is open source software (read: free) and will let you modify, save, and open any Microsoft document.

Huy -- there's always a free version of what you're looking for somewhere.  That's the beauty of the interwebs.

If this does not work.
B)There are many 3rd party utilities which claim to reset forgotten word password:
The program that I recommend is the Excel Password Recovery 5.0 It recovers/removes the "Password to Open" and "Password to Edit" for you to view and edit the document freely.

Documents to go how to restore excel files from

Hello and than you for using Fixya's services.

You should be able to use your syncing program to bring over the copy of the excel file from you palm to computer. If you need a good syncing program, check for some free trials and/or shareware.

You can also try email the file to yourself and saving from email to desktop. This will allow you to have a saved copy in your email as well.

Please let me know if you have additional questions.

Centro handheld won't sync with Desktop Calendar

Reinstalling the software would probably be the best Idea. If you need the calendar bad enough you could always do a full backup with a third party program onto the SD card, then do a hard reset. Maybe it's a problem with the Centro.

All of a sudden my one excel file is "locked"

With Documents-To-Go, you generally use their sync software to keep the files updated. If you used this software to put the document on the device, open the program up and click on that file to check it's settings on the right. You may need to delete the file off of the device, and reinstall it from the Docs2Go software. There are times when a document can become corrupted and needs a fresh reinstallation to get it back.

Suncing Media, Photos, Videos and MP3

The Palm Desktop Manager, which is free on the Palm website, can sync all your media to and from your phone. Here is the site, just choose the right OS for your computer.

When you sync your phone to your PC, it will ask you initially for what you want to sync. You can also do this anytime when you open up the Palm Desktop Manager on your PC. You can drag and drop your MP3s to the music folder on the Palm Desktop Manager and then sync it to your phone. This is the easiest way to get the MP3s on your phone.

You can also move photos/MP3s from your phone to your PC by using a 1GB SD card (the TREO 650 cannot accept any size larger than 1GB, trust me!). Copy your photos/videos/MP3s from your phone to the SD card and then take the card out of your phone. Use a USB Card Reader and connect it to your PC to read the SD card you just removed.

Good luck.

Unable to hotsync treo 600 with my computer

What is happening with the Sync? Does your PC and the Palm Desktop Manager recognize your TREO 600? If not, the issue may be that somehow the driver for your device was removed. I would suggest upgrading to the latest version of the Palm Desktop Manager and try plugging in your TREO 600 again and try synching.

Here is the location for the free software from Palm.

You also have to make sure that the setting on the Palm Desktop Manager is the same as the type of cable you are using. If it is a USB cable, have that setting on your PC's Palm Desktop Manager Hotsync settings.

Palm data and ActiveSync

You won't be able to do that. Lotus Organizer as well as Lotus Notes and OutHook are PIM some plus e-mail, just like Palm Desktop is a PIM. So you can have the Treo sync with Lotus Organizer AND have the Axim sync with it also it is because there are conduits buit for them. There is a middleware that allows both to talk to one. Now if you can find a piece of software out there that will sync a PocketPC with Palm Desktop, I'm sure a lot of Palm converts would love to know that.
