    STARTING THE TRANSLATION When you launch the HP PIM Translation Utility application on your desktop PC, you first see the Welcome screen: Click Appointments to begin translating Appoint Book data. Note To translate multiple PIM data files, you need to repeat the Translation opera- tion for each file separately.

  • Page 53: Translating Phone Book Data

    An Appointment Translation Limitation Although the Appointment Book applications on the HP 100LX/ 200LX palmtop PCs and HP OmniGo 100/120 organizers and the Calendar application on the HP Palmtop PC support daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly repeated events, the Schedule+ application supports only daily and yearly repeated events. Since all translation goes through Schedule+, there is no direct mapping from earlier HP Palmtop products to Schedule+ for repeating weekly and monthly events.

  • Page 54

    OK to return to Welcome screen. Mapping Field Names The HP PIM Translation Utility attempts to map the fields in your Phone Book data file to standard fields in a Schedule+ record. As long as your Phone Book fields have standard names (that is, you have not modified the Phone Book database field structure), the translation is straightforward.

  • Page 55

    You can add or modify the suggested mappings before translating the data. For example, if you have customized the name of a Phone Book field so that the HP PIM Translation Utility did not know how to map it, you can define a mapping for it yourself.

  • Page 56

    If a field in the left column is mapped to the wrong field in the right column, change the mapping by selecting a different Schedule+ field name from the drop down list box for the corresponding cell in the right column. 46 - HP Palmtop PC User Guide...
