    Unanswered: Mobile database

    I built for a client a fairly simple database. She has been using it for years and wants to access the information contained in that db from her mobile device.

    How do I achieve that?

    Cheers,

    or export to sqllite
    or suggest your client gets a decent mobile device with say excel on it, and expoert form access into excel
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    Could you expand on that a little?

    I have thought that, but I need an application to talk with the db on the server, right?

    I'm not sure if I want to take the time to learn how to build web applications that would talk with the db on server. But ultimately that is what i want. It sounds likes months on months of headaches for someone who has no programming education.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I had read about sqllite. That brings the db to the device, right?

    I want the db on a server and where you have to retrieve the data from it. So if you didn't have web access you would be out of luck.

    Thanks for the reply however I still don't comprehend what you are saying. I'm not advanced at all.
