Converting Back To The Sharp Addressbook
« on: January 12, 2005, 03:21:01 pm »
Since I first got a Zaurus -- 5500 I have used the TKC Addressbook.  (I have a 760 now) For various reasons I find myself thinking about switching back to the Sharp Addressbook.  The problem now is that the Applications now use two separate files to store their data.  One is dtm and the other is XML..

Does anyone know any easy what to convert the data for the TKC Addressbook into DTM?  Note that the Calendar will be my next problem.

Can't you sync the xml data with the DTM? TKC apps only do import?

I just about have the conversion done.  I ended up writing something in Python to do it.

Thanks for the help though.

Want to build a thunderbird plugin? In jscript?

Solution:

Install KA/Pi + KO/Pi.
Import xml file.
Sync with DTM.
