    I had to change my Palm conduits (using the Palm cd) so that my Treo syned with Outlook. All the organizer data should then be in Outlook.

    Just make sure you map the Contacts info so it transfers to Outlook as you want it to. I was in a hurry and didn't; now I have to cut n paste to get the data correct in all my contacts. Pain in the ___!

    Let me know if this doesn't make any sense.
    I'm sooo confuzzled lol

    Sorry I lost ya'. Let's start again.

    Desktop Manager (DM) version? lower left corner of the DM screen

    OS version on your BB? homescreen-options-about-3rd line down will read 4.x.x.xxx

    It sounds like you have installed DM. Have you run it yet? The first time you run DM, it connects to the internet to validate your installation... if it cant find the net, it wont let you continue.

    Just trying to figure out where you are.

    Sorry about that Stacy

    Good move on downloading DM without MM. I had issues with that when I first installed from the cd. Conflicted with other Roxio software on my pc. It's easier to just use drag 'n drop to move music, pictures etc to your media card. You do have a media card, right? If not, you will want to get one. Capacity of card you can use depends on the OS you are running on the BB? Too many initials, let me know.

    Yes, you can sync your organizer data to Outlook. First step is on the Palm side......

    Are you at the pc where you can do the Palm transfer to Outlook? You will need the Palm CD.

    I think you can do it this way:

    Changing a HotSync Conduit Action

    A conduit synchronizes data between your handheld and your computer for a specific application.
    For each user account, you can specify how a conduit will behave during subsequent HotSync operations.

    To change a HotSync conduit action

    1. From the HotSync Manager menu, choose Custom.
    2. Click the User selector and select which users conduits you want to change.
    3. Double-click the conduit you want to change.
    4. In the Change HotSync Action dialog box, select the action you want to use.
    5. Click the Set as default check box to save these settings as the default for future HotSync operations.

    Important If you do not click the Set as default check box, the action you select occurs only during the next HotSync operation.

    6. Click OK.
    7. Repeat steps 3 - 7 to change other conduits for the selected user account.
    8. In the Custom dialog box, click Done.

    nope this isn't it
    A conduit synchronizes data between your device and your computer for a specific application. You can control how a conduit for each account will behave during synchronization. You can change your conduit action preference:

    example; either syncs data with handheld
    or desktop overwrites handheld
    or handheld overwrites desktop
    or does nothing

    I'LL TRY TO FIGURE IT OUT
    THANKS

    I knew that; it's how I would overwrite one side or the other, but I thought you might be able to change the desktop application too. Didn't want to change mine around.

    I know I used the cd that came with my Treo. Try looking at the site from which you downloaded your files. My desktop was older version; 4.1.4.

    The idea is to switch the desktop application from palm deskto to outlook in the set up that come up (at least from the cd change/installation) Make sure you get any mapping set.

    Then you would be ready to sync with your berry.

    Let me know how it goes.

    This is the link to the User Guide for DM version 4.6. Look at p. 28. Switch Device Wizard may have frozen because you have Palm Desktop version 6.2. It only supports through Palm Desktop version 6.0.1

    If you were able to change the Palm conduits so that your Palm device sync'd with Outlook, all you data should have migrated to Outlook. This is what I was hoping for you to do. Did this not go as planned????

    i'm sorry been a bit busy
    nope didn't get anything done and been busy @ work
    nor did i get my outlook fixed

    you think if i delete the palm desktop 6.2 & dl the older 6.0 version it'll work? i mean i'll just sync the centro to transf all the info 6.0
    i think it's a better option rather than outlook since i'll be able to transf all data not just contacts into the bb right?

    Read those and see if that helps. I'm not sure what is on your BB now. Your last msg was cryptic. We might need to clear that first?

    what i thought i would do is delete the palm desktop 6.2 from my computer
    and install 6.0.1
    to see if that'll do the trick

    Make sure you have all your data intact on the palm. You also should still have the data file on the pc; just an "older" version of the Palm desktop.

    Syncing w/outlook will move calendar,contacts,tasks & memos

    Keep notes of what you do & what happens so you have something to refer back to.

    From Outlook helpfile.

    Restore Items by dragging from the .pst data file

    On the File menu, point to Open, and then click Outlook Data File.
    Click the .pst file you want, and then click OK.
    The name of the folder associated with the data file appears in the Folder List (folder home page: Internet Web page or intranet page that is associated with an Outlook folder. If a page has been associated with the folder and the option is set, the Web page appears in the Outlook window whenever you select the folder.). To view the Folder List, on the Go menu, click Folder List. By default, the folder will be called Personal Folders.

    Move or copy items in the folder that you opened to the folder you want to restore items to.
    To close the data file folder, right-click it and click Close "Folder Name" on the shortcut menu.

    Restore items by importing a .pst file

    On the File menu, click Import and Export.
    Click Import from another program or file, and then click Next.
    Click Personal Folder File (.pst), and then click Next.
    In the File to import box, specify the path and file name of the .pst file you want to import.
    Choose one of the following:
    1. Replace duplicates with items imported. If any existing data in the folder that you are importing to duplicates information in the .pst file, it will be overwritten with the information in the .pst file.
    2. Allow duplicate items to be created. Existing data in the folder you are importing to will not be overwritten with the information in the .pst file but will be kept instead.
    3. Do not import duplicate items. Existing data in the folder you are importing to will be kept, and any duplicate information in the .pst file will not be copied to the folder.
    Follow the remaining instructions in the Import and Export Wizard. Microsoft Outlook copies the items from the .pst into the folder you specify.

    I believe your Outlook data file is named outlook.pst. It is located in the following folder:
    c:\Documents and Setting\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

    I would wait before trying anything else at this point. If you have all your data in Outlook at work, I think the first option above may be your best bet. See if you can ask someone at work their opinion. Maybe they can show you how to do this on a pc at work.

    You still have all your data on the Palm, correct? So we can try this again. You should also have all your data on the Palm Desktop as a backup.

    Keep smiling.

    I do not have current & up to date contacts on the palm or palm desktop nor outlook anywhere.

    I do however have the contacts.csv file i saved when i first attempted to transf them, so is it a safe bet to assume i can at least transf them back into the palm desktop?

    I dont have all my data @ work, but i will attempt to maybe sync my palm to outlook at work & try transf data to the bb from here, cause i probably messed up my outlook at home & it's not syncing to my bb properly...


    thank you btw

    If you exported the .csv file from the Palm desktop, you should also be able to import it back in. My version (4.1.4) only supports .dba (Date Book Archive) and .vcs (vCal file) files on import, but yours may be able to import the .csv file.

    Do you mean sync to the Palm or Outlook? You need to get all your data in one place, on one device, at one time. Once you have that we should be able to proceed. If you sync at work you would only have access to the data on the pc there, obviously.

    One thing I haven't asked is about your email. Are you on BES or BIS? And is your email set correctly as CICAL and CMIME on your BB? options-advanced options-default services

    Do you only have one calendar set up on your BB? We need to have all your data, intact, in one place and a clean BB.
