Haven't tried myself but there's a great (free) app from Dynoplex called eFile. http://www.dynoplex.com/downloads.shtml which functions like Windows Explorer on the PC. I think eFile will allow you to file, create folders etc. for saved attachments on you BB.

Once you install eFile, review the documentation from Dynoplex -- it should be pretty clear. Be sure to have plenty of free memory on the Blackberry.

Thanks. I appreciate the reply, missed the free part in the first post...
1) Will eoffice allow you to save a pdf and view it from the blackberry?
2) As for on device file storage, I'm talking about 300-500 k files, might keep one or two on per week while I absorb the info in the file. Will that cause issues with the blackberry?

Yes, eFile can now store and show PDF files.

Thanks all
I'm slow but I got it. Looks like a nice program. I downloaded and installed it today. It worked for a test file, but did not save my pdf. I'll try it on another one tomorrow. Is this like the regular pdf reader, ie it exports the text for you to read and will not work on a pdf that is protected for no export copy or change? Most of the stuff I get pdf wise is coming this way now.

Later, and thanks all.
