I created an excel file on my desktop pc, then using activesync I created a folder on my desktop that would sync the files within it to my ppc. That worked fine, the excel file I put in the folder transfered to my ppc, I can find the file on my ppc, but it won't let me open the file, and there is no option to "open" a file from inside pocket excel. So how do I open the file on my ppc, then save it, so that next time I sync to my desktop it'll update the file that resides on the desktop pc?

I tried that, but the file isn't showing in file explorer as an excel file. When you click on the file it pops up a message and tells you it's not associated with a program, and to open the program then open the file. But again, excel doesn't have a "open file" option. Do I have to convert the excel file on my desktop pc before transfering it to my ppc? And if so, am I still going to be able to share the file so that it'll sync when I plug the ppc to the desktop pc?
The xls file transfered to the phone as a xlsx file. On the ppc I edited the file back to xls, but it still won't open it, says it's an invalid file.

then I noticed that there is a file pproximately the same size as the original one that went corrupt called Temp0FOO. I took a chance and deleted it and then I could save my files again as before.
Hope this works for you too.
likewise for me.
curious about this file (and hoping to extract some lost changes) i explored the file. altho mostly binary mine was full of date formatting strings... same as you would find when changing the format of a column and choose "date."
as this was something i was doing here and there during the initial construct of a spreadsheet- something about it left this remnant file. ...this bastard remnant file that cost me some lost data... :b _________________ <foobar>foobar</foobar>

Thanks for the info on the temp file! I've been unable to save Excel files for a week before finding your post...
I had a similar problem not being able to save my excel mobile files, that used to work fine for years. I could find no other helpfull URL's in Google so here goes (hope I'm adding to it
I was re-doing my Windows Mobile 5 phone and was restoring my files only to find it still would not save, then I noticed that there is a file pproximately the same size as the original one that went corrupt called Temp0FOO. I took a chance and deleted it and then I could save my files again as before.

I could not find any Temp0FOO on my PDA.
I have not figured out why yet, but I transfered all my Excel files from the folder named "EXCEL" to folder named "Personal", I could then modify spreadsheets and save wiithout changing the file name!!! No more "an error has occured while saving (filename)" Chris, any ideas why? I use a Treos 750 running WM6. Bob
