I have a requirement to transfer MS Office files between desktop and PPC 2003 (both ways) over HTTP / HTTPS. I know how to transfer the files over HTTP / HTTPS. What I would like to know is that how to convert the MS Office files to Pocket Office format (programmatically) and vice versa so that the same can be opened for viewing / editing in the respective platforms.

If this conversion is not possible programmatically, then I would like to know whether its possible to perform ActiveSync over HTTP so that the conversion happens automatically.

    ActiveSync handles the conversion as part of its functionality.  However there could be some element loss with a dual conversion (back and forth) so check out the Resource Kit:
