Unanswered: Transfer of subset of data to/from notebook
I have a need to dump a subset of a database from the server (SQL Server) to a notebook via the network, for data entry to be done on the notebook when it is in the field & not connected to the network & then the changes made to this data on the notebook to be applied to the database on the server.
The application for the front end to this is in Access. Would MSDE be the way to go for the database on the notebook ?
It's a small application with not many users, likelihood of conflicting edits is small.
Would the data transfer best be done with replication or with DTS ?
Presumably replication would allow options for control over conflicts, such as the same bit of data being changed on the server & on the notebook’s copy of the data ?
I need guidance re direction to head in with this.
