An end of year treat for H/PC fans has arrived just in time for Christmas. Stephen Bye of Bye Design Ltd. has released an updated version of the legendary SpreadCE spreadsheet for Handheld PC, Palm-sized PC, Pocket PC and Windows Mobile.

SpreadCE 3.13 is a bug fix and general service update for the already robust Pocket Excel alternative. Version 3.13 is the first servicing update to SpreadCE since the ground-breaking inclusion of a Visual Basic for Application (VBA) macro engine in the previous release.
VBA lets you augment the built-in standard spreadsheet functions with your own Visual Basic functions and UI manipulation code, affording greater levels of desktop computer independence and in-the-field automation than has ever been possible before.

In addition to its advanced functions, SpreadCE offers a robust set of spreadsheet and maths tools not available in Pocket Excel, including a comprehensive suite of charts, full xls and xlsx functionality and dynamic multi-lingual support.

A shareware version of SpreadCE can be downloaded directly from the Bye Design home page. If you are a registered owner of an older version, you can upgrade to the new 3.13 release for free by looking for the upgrade details being sent out by email. Registering the program as a new user costs $20.00 USD (£16.57 GBP, €18.87 EUD, ¥2647 JPY est.) and is well worth the nominal cost for anyone who uses a spreadsheet on their CE device as SpreadCE is far superior to the default and highly limited Pocket Excel.

Bye Design are keen to hear from the community in relation to further enhancing the programme as well as in helping them to finding and squash any bugs that may still be lurking in the engine. They ask that you report any bugs or issues via their support forum. You can also support the continued development of SpreadCE through a one-time or on-going donation via the links on the technical support forum should you further wish to honour the work that has gone into the creation of the tool.

I encourage all Windows CE users to have a look at the new release and if it is useful to you, please do consider purchasing a license or donating so that we can continue to see further development in the future.
