Pocket Excel is pre-installed on all Handheld PCs. A typical user expects to be able to open any spreadsheet from Microsoft Excel for Windows in Pocket Excel, work on it and save it back, with data and formatting intact.

Reality check please: Have you ever tried to open even moderately complex spreadsheets in Pocket Excel? Here is what happens:

- Pocket Excel supports only a quarter of Microsoft Excel's calculation functions. The rest is lost when opening a spreadsheet file.
- Pocket Excel has no support for charts at all. Not only can you not view or modify charts on the road, Pocket Excel also deletes them from your .XLS files.
- Pocket Excel does not provide any drawing functions, AutoShapes, cell comments or images. These objects, you might have guessed it, are silently discarded.

We haven't even started talking about password protection, conditional formatting, AutoFormat, merging cells or data grouping yet. None of these exist in Pocket Excel.

There is a better alternative: PlanMaker for Handheld PCs, the only full-featured spreadsheet package for Windows CE and CE.NET:

- More than 320 calculation functions, covering maths, financial mathematics, date and time calculations, data analysis etc.
- Supports complex numbers, array functions, iterative calculations and a vast range of statistics functions
- Lossless conversion (back and forth) of Microsoft Excel files (Excel 5.0, 95, 97, 2000, XP, 2003, and Excel for Apple Macintosh)
- Powerful charting engine that renders high-quality charts in 2D and 3D (70 different chart types)
- AutoShapes-compatible drawing directly in your worksheets (drawing, designing, flow-charting, magic connectors etc.)
- AutoFormat, hierarchical cell and character styles, conditional formatting
- Data grouping (outliner)
- Spell-checking in 16 languages
- ... and much more!
