Hi,

I just got the HTC diamond with microsoft mobile 6 installed. I’ve created a file using Excel Mobile and transfered it to my laptop and tried to open it but my Microsoft Works Spreadsheet was’nt able to open it giving me an error the file format was not supported. I tried the reverse by creating a file using Works Spreadsheet, saved it as an Office Excel format, transfered it to my HTC and tried to open it but I was given and error as well…

Does anyone know what the problem is???

Hi,
Did you verify that the file created on the HTC device is saved in .XLS format? Also, if it's saved in XLSX format then you would need a converter to use it with Works.

On the issue of using Works with Windows Mobile, I do not know the cause.

I would recommend using Office with it instead.
