VB2005 inferface with Pocket Excel

1 New Member
Ok so here is a brief summary of my problem. I need a pop up form that submits input text box information to a pocket excel workbook upon a command botton click. Text box inputs are checked for validity upon individual text box exit (don't have a problem with this part).

All this could be done with Excel VBA easily, but pocket excel doesn't have VBA/Macro support. In as much, I have been trying to create a VB2005 application that I can load onto the portable device and interface with pocket excel (as the database).

I can use VB2005 to create a .csv file (with semicolon deliminators) that is readable/savable in Excel. However, I have no idea as to how I can search an an existing Excel file for the last row entry (as a starting point for the input of new information submitted by the VB2005 application). I don't need to be able to edit the existing information in the Excel file, just add new information (without overwriting content).

I have tried to add the excel file as a data source in VB2005 however only SQL server and MS Access databases appear to be supported. Anyone have any advice (I could really use it)? Thanks.

If a pocket excel - VB2005 interface is overly complex, would it be easier to just create an in-memory data table that can write to / read from an xml file that could later be reconverted to a Access table (with Access VBA) when the portable device is sync'ed with a PC?

I have a communications test program written in Visual C++. I use the PC's serial port and save data in a Excel database. I want to run this program on a pocket PC. 1. Do I need another compiler to do this? Which one? 2. Is there certain code that will not port over to the Pocket PC?

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
