[HS] Re:Palm OS Task List

 

Others may have a better suggestion but I copied and pasted into the memo
feature in outlook (palm desktop works also) then imported the memos into
handyshopper. I tried copying and pasting on the palm itself but that got
kind of cumbersome switching between the 2.

[HS] Re: Palm OS Task List - SOLUTION

 

What I ended up doing is syncing my Centro with Lotus Organizer via LapLink PDASync. Then exporting the Organizer task list to a CSV file. In the end it might have been more work than it was worth! It did get me to finally start using the Organizer for my desktop software. It is much more fully featured than the Palm Desktop package.

What I soon discovered is there are a multitude of shared shopping lists containing all the items I would have needed to re-enter. I have since installed these shared lists and intend to use them to add "new" items to my current shopping list.

I have also discovered the entire world of "other" applications for the HandyShopper software. I'm most interested in recipes, which seems a natural. At this point I'm feeling a bit embarrassed having put off for so long installing and using this very well written software!

[HS] Adding a single entry into an existing database with hs3convert.exe

 

Hello, i recently found the promising tool hs3convert.exe, Sometimes i want to add an entry typed with the desktop computer into my palm handyshopper database (for example a new recipe into my handyshopper-cookbook-database) I dont want to change or convert any of the existing database entries. Is there any way to do this? Any Help is appreciated.

Re: [HS] Adding a single entry into an existing database with hs3convert.exe

 

That's funny, cause I was just doing something similar, but you don't need hs3convert, atleast not if are on a WM device.

What I did in mine, was I went to the Notes tab of the entry I wanted to add the ingredients for a recipe I wanted, I typed "add text here" with a couple returns afterward to make a space in the file.

Then I went to Tools, Export. Name the file with a .txt extension, the location should default to the My Documents folder, which means it will sync to your PC, if you sync Files.

Open the file in Notepad, and look for the item you want to edit, and paste your text into the space you created. Now, this is where you don't do what I did! You will want to delete all other entries out of the database, but leave the header lines at the top. Save and Exit.

Let it sync back, then go back into HS and go to Tools, Import. What I found when I did mine, was it created new entries for EVERYTHING, including the one I edited, so I ended up having to delete the duplicates. But, if you deleted all the other entries, you only have one new entry. Just delete your original entry that you modified, and you are all set.

You can probably use this as a template to add items from your PC, just don't delete the weird characters, I think those are what HS uses to tell what the fields are.

RE: [HS] Adding a single entry into an existing database with hs3convert.exe

 

First of all, I'm not sure I follow you. Do you mean that you don't want to edit any HS list in your PC but want to add directly a new entry from your PC to a list (database) in your Palm? If this is so, there is a number of ways to do that, and you will find them in previous posts in this group and / or the wiki for Handy shopper that Greg prepared some time ago (you will find the address at the bottom of any message from this group).
Mainly you will find two approaches: find a PC (or MAc) application that lets you operate directly from your Desktop to the Palm when it is connected to it (some just let you use tour computer Keyboard and you see the result in your palm, some showe you a "virtual" palm in yout computer screen where you use HS and make the changes you wish as if you were directly using your Palm); the second option is to create a dummy database that you work with in you desktop to create any new entries for any list you have in your palm, use hs3convert.exe to convert it to a HS list and hostsync it to your palm. There, press and hold on any item, use the copy to function in the contextual menu that appears, and select the list you want that item to be transferred to. As I have never edited lists in my desktop, I cannot tell you if list edit is up-to-date right now, but you can search both the wiki for general guidelines and recent posts for that information: if I recall right, the most up-to-date possibility was that prepared by Bob Moynihan, and he recently (?) made a post that he was working to include lasts changes made in the database by Chris Anthos, the developer (sounds like Alenxander the Great, Hannibal,king of the huns... !)

Hope this helps, and if something I wrote is wrong os misleading, I'm sure somebodywill correct me,

Xavier

Yes you can, HS reads the exact same files if you just copy them over.
Either with a memorycard or beaming. (or whatever other means)

[HS] HandyShopper replacement on Palm Pre

 

My TX is dying, so I recently purchased a Palm Pre. I can run HandyShopper using the Classic emulator, but it's not the same. The Pre interface was just not designed for stylus type actions. So I am looking for a new shopping program. Of course what I really want is HandyShopper on the Palm Pre, but since I can't have that. I have found TealShopper, GroceryList, easyShop for the Palm Pre but I don't have any experience with any of these. Their descriptions make them sound more like list generators and not shopping programs. What's the best alternative shopping list?

Thanks,
kdhaley

Sorry for your loss.
Why not try those programs out and decide for yourself which of them are
the best for you?
Do they not offer a trial period or demo version?
IMHO, any program that doesn't, isn't worth buying, since they clearly
don't think the software is good enough to sell itself.
Isn't there a SplashShopper for Pre yet? If so, that's probably your
best bet. They copycatted HandyShopper years ago, and seem to be
developing for multiple platforms.

Good luck!
-Greg

Re: [HS] HandyShopper replacement on Palm Pre

 

There are some programs on the Pre platform with demo versions and some free lite versions. But the current offering of Shopping programs, at least those that I can find, are strictly you buy it to try it. SplashData has indicated that they plan on developing SplashShopper and SplashWallet "sometime". But I don't believe SplashShopper is currently under development for the Pre, and it definately does not currently exist.
