I have the export to memo pad down pat, I have the backup bit set, no problem. But for the life of me I can't seem to be able to get the data into a format that would import into Excel or Access. I have VB code that will take that elusive data and do all kinds of things to make an effective desktop extension, but I just can't seeem to get the export working. Anyone else had any luck doing so?

I won't claim to be an expert on those things but, isn't there a handful of utilities 'out there' that will convert misc. Palm databases to just as many PC-formats?

You say you have a VB application ready to do unmentionable things to the data... if you've made that VB application yourself then you might have what it takes to stitch up a conduit that can both retrieve the Palm data AND put it into spreadsheets and desktop databases.

Unfortunatly all these apps seem to use different database formats and I can't seem to find one that extracts it ones OrbForms creates.
Yea I could probably take the time and write the condiuit but with all the projects I'm juggeling I was looking for a jump start.

If I find or create something I'll post here.
