Simplified Office Software
The PDA Estimating program has been rewritten using Visual Studio 2005.
The previous versions were written using Visual Studio 6, which supported the Pocket
PC 2002 as well as Pocket PC 2003 and later models. This version has not been
tested on a Pocket PC 2002 device and presumably will not work on these older models. To
download the latest previous version of PDA-Estimating (Version 1.6) click here
. (Previous versions required the installation
on your desktop/notebook PC.)
The PDA Utilities are now included in the SOS - Estimating / Invoicing /
Payroll program and is no longer a stand alone program. After an estimate created
on the Pocket PC has been converted the estimate is opened automatically for you on
your PC so that you may edit the estimate, print Proposals, or create a Time &
Materials Billing Invoice.
Scroll Bars were added to the Job Name & Address, Job Description & Job
Status textboxes &
the text area now resizes when the keyboard is activated.

from a saved estimate was corrected.

converting estimates from the PocketPC to a PC.

rate for Periods Of Time was not being saved correctly.
5/28/2009 - Code was revised to allow the new DataSource design to be incorrporated.
