Default Docs To Go - How to CREATE docs using DTG standard (FREE)!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Right,

As promised, I have found a trick to let you create Word, Excel and Slideshow documents using DTG Standard (the one that ships with OS 4.5).

1. Go to your PC and get ready to send yourself an email to your BB email address. Make sure that your BB is set to receive emails via BIS / BES, and NOT Desktop redirector, as attachments do not always come through this way.

2. Call the email subject something like: WORD DOCUMENT TEMPLATE

3. Attach to the email a blank word document (.doc), and make sure the filename for the document is something like: WORD DOCUMENT TEMPLATE

4. Send the email.

5. Once it arrives on your BB, save it to your DEVICE MEMORY.

6. Now, whenever you want to create a word document from scratch on your BB, open DTG and select this document. Once you have typed it, go to MENU > SAVE AS... and call it whatever you want.

7. Repeat this for Excel and Powerpoint presentations.


ENJOY!

Neil

I did essentially the same thing. I created an empty document on my PC called "-EmptyDocument.doc" (so it shows up above any other document) and then transferred it using the Media Manager. It doesn't matter how you get it there. This works quite well for creating new documents. I'm really kind of surprised they didn't disable the "Save As" option in the standard edition.

That would be a silly thing to do what if you wanted legitimately to resave a file with a different name.

How would I do this for Excel if there is no Excel 2 Go on Standard?

Get the upgraded version. Use the Menu in Docs to Go to "Register" and then you can download the upgraded free version.

Thanks for the tips, I register and upgrade to the (free) new version, create a blank word, excel, and powerpoint, and than drag and drop it to my media card, now I can create and edit all three types of file.

I'd actually be surprised if they did. DataViz is not known for being a bunch of pr*cks. I've been using their programs for years on the palm platform and all I have ever seen from them was continual effort to improve their product; tis why I have been holding off on purchasing any other similar program.

However, this is a different platform with which seems to come a different mentality, so who knows.

Edit comes with the standard version loaded with OS 4.5. However, you'll want to register and do the update (it's free.)

I registered but never saw any place to update. Also, the trick for creating a blank doc and sending it to you phone doesn;t work for Word 2007. I got an error that D2G Standard does not support Office 2007 products. Bummer.

Once you register, the menu item for register changes to upgrade.

You can save the files to your media card rather than to Device Memory...no need to use up Device Memory for this, and that way you still have them if you have to wipe your BB.

I just upgraded to version 4.5, my documents to go only contains 3 icons, UP, WordtoGO and slideshow to go. Is Excel available? Not sure what UP does except to bring it to the main screen.

Open Word To Go and register your copy. Then do the free upgrade. You will then get Sheet To Go.
