    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.
