Moving 100/200LX NoteTaker and Database files To Pocket Word and Pocke

Moving 100/200LX NoteTaker and Database files To Pocket Word and Pocket Excel on the HP 320LX

By Hal Goldstein

HP 100LX and 200LX NoteTaker and Database files can be accessed on the HP 320LX in either Pocket Word and Pocket Excel. In fact, like Lotus 1-2-3, Pocket Excel can be used as a tabular database.

The trick in either case is to make use of F5 (Smart Clip) in NoteTaker and DataBase. Smart Clip is a powerful, easy-to-use formatter that lets you output data in any format you want. If you decide to export to Excel, then you need to create a Smart Clip that produces a Comma Delimited or Tabular file which Excel (on a Windows 95 machine) can read.

So for example, in NoteTaker you might create a smart clip that reads: Category,Title,Note using the F2 (Field) key within Smart Clip. (You may, however, have difficulty importing into Excel long comments in the Notes field the way you want them.) Once you have defined the Smart Clip, from the main NoteTaker or Database menu use the (Menu) File Print command to create the file to be imported into Excel.

Similarly, Pocket Word will read the output from any Database or NoteTaker file (using Smart Clip and (Menu) File Print). If you wish to create a 320LX Pocket Word document from your 100/200LX NoteTaker or Database file, you will have to decide how you want your data displayed, and in what order. The end result will be a long Pocket Word file with one Database/ NoteTaker record following another.

The good news about the Pocket Excel and Pocket Word solutions is that both allow access of HP 100/200LX data. The bad news is that the access is clumsy, and creating new data for the databases is even clumsier.
