    Hello, I have an access 2003(runtime) custom front-end application that uses
    SQL Server 2000 as the back-end. Some users now what to run it on Tablet
    PCs. Is there any reason why it wouldn't work on a tablet PC? Is the
    operating system for the tablet pc the same as a regular pc? Or do you need
    to create new .net applications to run on tablet pcs.

    Thanks

    There is a special edition of Windows for tablet PCs, but if they are
    directly connected to the LAN or WAN where the server running SQL Server
    resides, your Access application should work just as well as on desktop
    machines (provided the network connections are as stable and solid as the
    connections to the desktop machines).

    If that is an Internet connection, however, accessing your database remotely
    becomes more complicated. I'm not familiar with the "issues" involved, so if
    you clarify that the connection is via Internet, someone else will have to
    assist.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
