Is there a way to type all my information into my computer and install it on the palm?

Currenty there is not.  I hope to be able to build a conduit in the future but I am lacking the resources (skills, time, programming languages).  I am learning though so don't give up on me.  I will send out an email to all those who have registered if I ever complete this project.

Can I import information from MIS?

Yeah that would be nice!  First I would need to build the conduit, so refer to the previous question.  Once I have a conduit it probably wouldn't be too hard.  I built this at the request of many HVTracker users so I am not an Elders Quorum President or anyone that should have access to the home teaching information.  I am an assistant ward clerk though so maybe if I get around to building a conduit I can look into trying to import information.

If I beam this to someone is all the my information transferred as well?

Only the application is transferred so feel free to beam away!

I want to share my information whith someone.  Can I beam it?

Sorry. I haven't yet figured out how to beam individual databases. There is a work-around to this dilemma though. If you look in your Palm back-up directory, back-ups of your information should be made.  Find the six following databases and put them on a disk or email them to the person you would like to share the information with:
Districts.PDB
Supervisors.PDB
Companionships.PDB
Teachers.PDB
Families.PDB
Visits.PDB
Hint: Either do a search for these files or look in C:\Palm\<HotSync LastF>\Backup\

Can I beam information to someone who has HVTracker?

See the answer to the previous question.  Once I can figure out the other one, look for this in the future.
