Transfer your Time & Chaos data
over to Microsoft Outlook 2000
The guys over at iBiSTER,
the makers of a semi-popular PIM have all kinds of ways to get
your Outlook data into it, but they, surprisingly, don't offer
a way to export your Time & Chaos data into Microsoft Outlook.
I was helping a new client the
other day and he wanted to start using Outlook 2000 instead of
Time & Chaos for his PIM. After several passes at the help
file and and a while of web searches, I gave up...
Then it hit me. I could export
the T&C data to my Palm Pilot and then back into Outlook
Here's how I did it:
1) Download iSBiSTER's ChaosSync
for $20 bucks and perform a sync with Time & Chaos to your
Palm device. You'll need to install the Palm Desktop software
first and tell the Palm Desktop software to sync with the Desktop
software and not Outlook.
2) Now that T&C is sync'd
up with your Palm, you can now sync up with Outlook. But... The
T&C ChaosSync software has changed the way the Palm Desktop
3) You need to upload the Pal
Desktop software and reload it. When it asks if you want Typical
Install or Custom choose Custom... then choose the Sync with
4) Now perform a new sync by
pressing the Hotsync button on the Palm base or by right-clicking
on the Palm HotSync icon on the lower right of your screen (if
its loaded) and thats all there is to it.
If you don't have a Palm or don't
want to download and pay for the chaossync software, MikesHardware
offers a transfer service for a small fee of $10. Just email
your Time & Chaos data to us here and we'll send you back
a Outlook data file.
