    Viewing docs/xls

    Advertisement



    I just got my pearl and so far love it. I'm coming from treo 650 palm.

    I don't have a data plan, so I'm just using the pearl for phone/text/calendar/notes/tasks.

    I wanted to see if there's a way to view word doc/xls/pdf files. I came across beamberry and installed it, but then realised that the beamberry software is just a client that connects to server to process the doc and then display it.


    As I don't have a data plan and am not connecting to any servers, am I out of luck?

    Thanks.

    You might try eOffice - http://www.dynoplex.com/eOffice.shtml. Don't think it needs a connection but can't say for sure.

    Natively, other than media files you can only view email attachments - hard to do without email service!

    Re: Viewing docs/xls

    I tried installing it, but it kept telling me to connect my device even though my blackberry was already connected and synced with my pc...


    Does anyone know how I can view my notes / tasks on my pc (like I can on Palmdesktop?) Maybe I can just copy/paste some things to notes. But I have no idea how to open the notes on the pc.

    Thanks.

    Hi there! You might want to try and look at this link http://www.dataviz.com/. The software is coming soon.

    I just had an idea.

    I can just convert my xls or doc files to htm and use the pearls browser to open the file. The only thing is that I don't see a browser icon, what gives??

    I have Grid Magic installed on my Blackberry and it works very good with Excel.

    Thanks I'll give it a shot.

    I also just installed opera mini. Is there ANY way to open saved HTM files in pearl with opera mini or bb browser WITHOUT a data plan??? Please please help. Thanks.

    Ok, created a workaround.

    1. Install mobipocket reader on bb.
    2. install mobipocket creater on pc
    3. convert word files / xls files to html
    4. convert html files to mb reader format using mb creator.
    5. transfer files to pearl and now I can see my docs...
