I have a smalll XLS spreadheet that I frequently use. For now, I just sent it to myself as an attachement to an email. On the 8800 I can then open the attachment.

But I dont want to have to search for the email all the time.

AS well, this XLS file will be sent to a few hundred 8800 users in my company, so I want to give out easy instructions on where they can store and retreive the file.

Is there a way I can just save the file somewhere? I thought at first I would use Media and set up an icon there for easy reference, but I cant seem to be able to do that ( I can create a subfolder using Explore but its not easy to find it without a top menu icon )

Any suggestions?

(As an aside, this file is really slick- it's a listing of 2000 locations. one column for the name, one column for a populated http link to maps.blackberry.com. So users just scroll down the alphaetic spreadsheet to find the location thet want, and double (or triple) click the next column to view the map using Blackberry maps).

Thanks

MM

Sounds like a cool tool.

I would just click the scroll wheel and choose 'save'. This will place the file in the saved messages folder. To view, choose 'view saved messages' from the messages drop down screen.

In pre-4.x handheld software, you could use 'v' as a keyboard shortcut to access the saved folder, but that went away with 4.x.

Hope this helps.
