Note: The process detailed in this video is also explained in the IDVisor Software User Manual; see page 39 (Method 2. Exporting data from a Mac or PC Palm Desktop).

The MAC version of this process is slightly different than the PC version which is why we created this video.

If using a PC, it is suggested that you take advantage of the MemoPad2CSV software provided on the download page and the directions provided in the IDVisor Software User Manual; see page 29.

3/18/2010 – Here is an alternative method to exporting the data from the Palm Desktop to Excel. In this demo, the extension on the file name exported from the Palm Desktop uses a *.txt extension and then when opening this file with Excel, one selects the file type of “text file” which then causes the Excel Text Import Wizard to launch.
