    The Dell Axiom (I've been told is a Pocket PC)
    that can run wireless & use databases & Email.
    I understand "Microsoft databases" can run on
    Pocket PCs.

    Is Access a DB will can run on a Pocket PC?

    I'm looking to collect data & Email DBF files
    to be Imported at Regional Offices. IF Lotus
    Notes can also run on a Pocket PC, I'm ready
    to make this work.

    I currently use Regional Access DBs to send DBF
    files via Lotus Notes for Importing at the Corporate Office.

    Any insight welcomed.

    TIA - Bob

    While there's an application called "Pocket Access" for some (but not all)
    Pocket PCs, it really doesn't give you any of the functionality of Access.

    Doug - Thank you.

    The Client really wants me to research this & provide a solution. I'll look
    into these. At any rate, I'd have to Program what I need in something other
    than Access & then send DBFs to Access.

    I've never used XML Files. I understand they can also be Imported into
    Access.
    Sure would like to continue using the DBF coding that has worked for 5 years.
