transfer Pocket C database to desktop computer

Discuss PocketC for Palm OS (including Desktop Edition)

Postby wjmal on Fri Jan 06, 2006 2:36 am


Palm IIIxe monochrome. I have used Pocket C to make a database. 200 records, 8 "sz" string fields. I need to, like "expense", get my database into a desktop spreadsheet. I use Pinstall to trasfer my source code to and from PDE, but I don't know how to transfer data, like the DB. Should I package the database, so it's listed in the program directory?

I would appreciate your guidance.

To get your database from your device to the desktop, set the backup bit (using dbbackup()). After you sync, it should show up in C:\Program Files\Palm\<user>\Backup (or somewhere similar, depending on your config).
