DataViz, Inc. has just released a new version of Documents To Go Premium Edition that is first Palm OS solution to offer complete Microsoft Office 2007 file support.
An earlier version allowed users to view Office 2007 documents in their native formats, but with today’s release this suite of applications now allows people to view, edit, and create Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 files.
Why Is This Important??
Office 2007 is the most significant upgrade in this suite of applications in about a decade, leading to big changes in the associated file formats. The latest version uses a new Extensible Markup Language (XML) based file format, Open XML, which was designed to facilitate data exchange between different information systems.
This required DataViz to make big changes in Documents To Go to support the new formats.
Naturally, this application allows users to edit and save Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents from earlier versions of Microsoft Office in their native formats, too.
Documents To Go Premium Edition 10.002 sells for $50 and is available directly from DataViz.
Customers who purchased version 10.001 with the capability to view Word and Excel 2007 files can get the upgrade at no additional cost.
Those who have a previous version of Documents To Go, including people who got it bundled with their handheld or smartphone, can upgrade for $30.
