    Hi All,

    I am using Vista Business and have downloaded the latest WMDC.
    Everything Syncs fine however, Pocket Excel files and word files are not
    converted so I cannot read them in Excel / Word 2007.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Mark

    Hi Mark,

    WM5.0 onwards Word Mobile & Excel Mobile save their files in native desktop
    format. I would assume since the file convertors are not available it will
    not convert the documents. I would suggest you open the files in question on
    your device and use Tools -> Save Document As option to save them in the
    Word 97/2000 document format. This should enable you to read your documents
    on the desktop.

    Note: This would create copies of the original file in the new format.

    Hi Raj,

    I have discovered that if you save the document in compatibillity mode, it
    will sync to the device.
    The proble I had was tring to sync a file on my IPAQ, that was created
    before the upgrade which did not work.

    I got around it by using an XP PC.

    However, just tried your method and it was fine.

    Many thanks. Another work around found well done!
