  3. Select the menu option Export | Export Selected to Visit List. This will export the selected properties to a holding place, ready for sending to the Pocket PC by the PS Survey Manager'
  4. The Visit List file will now be displayed in the PS Data Doctor. Close this file down, as you should not need to make any changes
