View and edit other word processor documents in MEMO

95LX 100/200LX

You can import on other word processing documents into MEMO as follows. Most word processing software allows you to save a document as a "Text" or "ASCII" file. (In many modern Window's-based word processors, you press the File Save As option and select the *.TXT or DOS Text option.) This creates a document file with text only. After you save a file as a text file, you can copy it over to your HP 95LX or 100/200LX and open it up in MEMO and work on it.

Likewise, most word processing software can open and work on text or ASCII files. So you can copy an unformatted MEMO file you've been working on over to your desktop PC and open it up in your favorite word processor.


The newer version of Memo on the 100/200LX allows you to format text (underline or bold). I could not successfully import a formatted Memo document in WordPerfect 5.1 for DOS, WordPerfect 6.0 for Windows or MS-Word for Windows 2.0. If you have underlined or bolded text in your Memo file, save it without formatting as follows. With the document opened, press (MENU) File Save As. You are presented with a "Save the current file as" dialog box. Tab to the box labeled "ASCII" and press (<Spacebar>) to check it off. Tab back to the file name box, give the document a name, and press (F10) (OK). You should be able to open this file in another word processor.
