In short. "POCKET ACCESS" did that.

But with the passing of Windows Mobile those units may be very hard to find.

If you look at APPS there may be something but as an author for PalmOS, WM and now Android the sync requirement may be the killer here. I'm guessing you want it to be automatic with out any procedure to be done on your part.

Thanks Bob....yes...wanting it to be as automatic as possible. HanDBase claims to do what I need but I was looking for someone who is actually doing it right now to verify. I'm open to any suggestions anyone would have.

I'm unsure why you don't use that. Was it a matter of disbelief?

Here we never could use that as we have thousands of users and the cost, well it would just add costs where our app is free for the entire company to use as they want, as many times and copies as they want.

There's a reason folk opt for off the shelf or custom. We went custom.
