Can someone who has used a Mobil5.0 application to open,modify a MS Access Database. Would you share how you did this? I'm fairly new to VS2005. I have a application that communicates with a text file but would really like it to use a database instead.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try SqlServerCE 2.0 or 3.0! any one of those. it is very easy to deploy and mantain rather than MS Access Database on Pocket PC and PDA,EDAs etc. Couple of years ago, I tried MS Access but i faced so many problems in my program. so I preferred SQLSERVER Compact Edition. builtin with VS 2005.
Just add a reference System.Data.SqlServerCe in you application and Enjoy the DBMS.

    I am assume this is something I have to install on each handheld? Then could I use SQL Lite on a shared computer? What about MySQL on a shared computer? Why all this sharing? I have many handhelds that need to modify, create, and view information wirelessly. Right now I can do that, but in a text file. I was hoping for a way to use MS Access databse. It's the only corporate approve database for employee use. uhhhggg Thanks for the answer! It gives me an option maybe. Any thoughts? Maybe I need to approach this from another view point. I don't know, like I said I fairl new to VS2005 and Mobil5.0. Using CE I'm able to connect just fine to a MS Access database no problem.
