    Don't know if this is a no-no for this group, if so, please direct me to a
    better group if that is the case

    Does anyone have a hardware suggestion for:

    Have an Access Inventory/purchase order DB. I don't want to carry around a
    notebook computer, but would like "something smaller" that would have Access on
    it, CE or pocket PC, I don't even know what these PDA-size contraptions are
    capable of.

    Then, as I visit the various supply sites, I can enter orders, etc, and sync
    with the Access DB on my Desktop computer. I realize that the "sync with
    Desktop" is another question, consideration. But I was just wondering what's out
    there, what people are using. I kind of assume that anything less than a
    notebook would be too small to actually enter data into.....as in; by the time I
    used some small stylus hunt/peck keys, I'd be blind with the eyestrain.

    Thanks

    There are no Pocket Access programs, but there are other databases which to
    one degree or another, sync with an Access desktop application. Look at
    HanDBase, and Pendragon:
