I am going to buy a PDA today and I am just curious if pocket excel is any good. What can I do in it. To what extent do the formulas go to. I have looked around on Microsoft but can't seem to find any info.

Thanks a lot

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

I have a pocket PC (Ipaq 3650) and the pocket excel is rather good, small viewing area naturally. but it does custom scaling with 'clear type'. split windows, full screen, colors, fonts, borders, formulas, multiple sheets, symbols, sorts, filters.

the only major thing I have run into that is different from excel 2000 / 2002 is that it does not support conditional color formatting. but I am checking into a possible way around that.

I'm sure you've found your way to this already :)

some issues:

I'd also suggest you take a look on the MS excel newsgroups & search for 'pocket excel' to get a feel for the issues others have had (seems to be more people posting re pocket there than here).

EDIT: on reflection, seeing the age of the OP, I guess Russel was happy with his purchase!
