I understand, as you pointed out and and also what I have seen elsewhere,
that the LD uses a somewhat different filing system, and was a little
concerned on the compatibility. I have mailed DateBook5 (pimlicosoftware),
as I run DB5 already with the TT, and find it a better date application than

I have a number of other apps from the TT, so guess I'll just have to "wade
my way through them", and hope the results are favourable.
Thanks for your feedback.
