Documents To Go 4.0 Professional Edition has been released by Dataviz.

The software enables Microsoft Word and Excel documents to be created, viewed and edited on a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) running the Palm OS. It also allows PowerPoint presentations to be viewed on Palm OS handhelds.

Version 4.0's spreadsheet functionality - Sheet to Go - has enhanced compatibility with Excel, Lotus 1-2-3, and Quattro Pro. It supports over 110 functions, including logic, finance and statistics.

Documents, spreadsheets and presentations can be downloaded onto SD (Secure Digital) and MultiMediaCard media. This latest version of Documents To Go supports multiple Macs, allowing "quick and easy" exchange of data between two or more computers.

PowerPoint files can be viewed with a new feature called Slideshow To Go

Palm is giving away Documents To Go 4.0 software free to owners of the Palm m500 handheld series launched in March. Version 4.0 can be downloaded within thirty days of an m500's purchase date. The software is normally priced at £64.99, and will be stocked by Microwarehouse UK.
