by Kyle D'Addario

Semicolon Software has released HanDBase Desktop 2.0. HanDBase Desktop allows users to transfer database, spreadsheet, or word processing documents to their Palm Pilot organizer for easy, portable access. Version 2.0 is a major upgrade, with many new features. According to Semicolon Software:

Version 2.0 offers compatibility with HanDBase 2.0, AppleScript automation, a CSV file viewer, and optional ISO Latin character conversion.

With HanDBase Desktop for Macintosh, users can transfer information from Mac databases, spreadsheets, and word processors onto their Palm organizers, and carry it with them for easy, anywhere-anytime access. New or modified data from the Palm can be transferred back to the Macintosh and reimported into Mac applications for printing, collating, distribution, report generation, and archiving.

HanDBase, a separate product, is a database application for the Palm handheld organizer. HanDBase is produced by DDH Software.

  • Compatible with HanDBase 2.0 for the Palm
  • Scriptable - automate your conversions with simple AppleScripts
  • CSV file viewer allows convenient review of input and output text files
