Unhappy Help needed with phonebook

Please Login to Remove!

hi everyone,

i have kind of a difficult question, if someone can help me with an answer of any boss gave me w hand written list of names and phone numbers and he wants me to make a list of them on my computer in a type of document which will allow him to load that document in his blackberry phone and those numbers to enter in his agenda i'm not sure if this makes any sense, probably there's no way to do this, but i'm just asking... as far as i know, it is possible to make a backup list of your phone numbers from your agenda into your computer, as an excel type of file and it comes out as a list with all the details you have in the phone for all the numbers you have. but what i want to know is if it's possible the other way around as well...?
problem is i can't use outlook, because i already keep his agenda there with all his phone numbers and this one which he gave me now is a separate one for another phone and he would like to keep them separate...
please help...anyone who thinks they know a way around this...thanks in advance ;)

Besides the fact you need a new boss some of this may help. The calendar and address book on a blackberry are usually synchronized with a few specific applications. One is Outlook. If I understood what your asking the easiest thing is to use an app on the bb such as MemoPad and use desktop manager to manage them in and out for a list of numbers. Outlook sync will remain separate. You will need to have DM on your pc or his. Also take a look at AppWorld and see if any of the apps there will offer a better solution.

you might try using an IPD file reader to unlock the backup and create an XL file

thanks for the help, as far as the new boss goes, i already know i have to change him :P
i have the desktop manager installed, but until now i only used it for sync issues. i will try to look into it more thoroughly
