    We wish to use a laptop offsite and occasionally update the main database
    whilst offsite. If this was a word doc we could use offline folders to sync
    when we get back to the office but MDB files seem excluded from this. If we
    used a pocketpc we could use active sync.
    So what is the best way to achieve this with an XPpro laptop running access
    2003 please

    well part of the answer probably depends on what is meant by 'occasionally'
    update and the size of the laptop's table file

    in the end I think you are going to be doing an 'AppendTable' query to merge
    the laptop table into the main DB's table.....

    It sounds like you need to start looking into Replication. There's a
    separate newsgroup for Replication. It can be a hassle getting going
    and, once going, obey the rules. Then it's a thing of beauty.
