Restoring the AutoText database
The AutoText function automatically replaces text that you type with pre-programmed text. If you restore a backup of a version 2.1 AutoText database, English AutoText entries will appear on the handheld in English, and French entries will appear in French. If you restore a backup of a version 2.0 or previous AutoText database, the handheld must be in the same language when you restore as it was when you backed it up. Otherwise, any new AutoText entries you created on the desktop will be available only in the language the handheld was in when you restored the database.
See the online help topic “Performing an Advanced restore” for complete instructions on restoring your AutoText database.
