    What do you want to track? Hours, material, people, inventory, GPS data, billing.... need to know a little bit more about what you want to do.

    Pocket PCs and PDAs are not the same animal. What is the device you have?

    If you have a pda that is running windows mobile use excel I use Pocket Informant to kept all my contacts in and my task list and calender for all my scheduling and appointments. pm me and I can give you a list of some web sites that may help. This will be my 3rd year using a pda.

    Since you have a Ipaq Pocket PC, you want to look for software for the OS running on that device, not Palm OS PDA software.

    Do a search for software on these devices. One example:

    http://www.pdatopsoft.com/software/?ss=3

    Note the software entries are unique for Pocket PC and Palm PDA. Unfortunately, the term "PDA" has been garbled to mean too many different things. But, be sure your search is focused on Pocket PC applications, not apps for other devices.
