Palm 3XE - Address Book Query

Just got a used 3XE. Software 3.5.3
Downloaded Palm Desktop Ver. 4.1.4 running on Windows XP Home.

My question regards the Hot Syncing of the Address Book. Am I correct in thinking that only the first level address gets transferred to the Palm?

I.E. If a contact only has a HOME address and no Work address in Palm desktop, I should enter the information in the WORK field?

At this point I had started entering information in the Home area but nothing is showing up in the Palm.

Cheers,

The extra fields can not be used by your IIIxe and are just confusing you. Best to uninstall it and install version 4.1 for Windows NT from Palm® Support Knowledge Library article 33529 "Palm Desktop: all versions."

Thanks Josser, will try this.

On that Palm support page it says to just load the software over existing. But I guess that is for moving up a level. In my case you are suggesting going back a level, so I should un-install first, right?

Does the un-install leave the backup files for 'contacts', 'memo' in place? Or when I do the first 'Hotsysnc' will my Palm files be moved back onto the PC in the new format?

Just checking as don't want to lose existing data.

Thanks

Uninstall leaves all the user data. I would make a copy of the data to be safe.

All worked fine. In fact, the software 4.1.4 seemed to install the program in a directory called 'Palm1', while the Version 4.1 for NT created a directory of 'Palm'. So nothing overlapped.

As I was bringing in data from a non Palm organiser in CSV format, I had to recreate all the data anyway.

But thank you for the tip to use the Version for NT, Much simpler all round.

Now I just need to search for an import program to synchronize my addresses with Mozilla Thunderbird Ver 2. There seemed to be an add-on for earlier versions but haven't seen anything for later stuff.

Cheers.
