Hi Charles,

Can you explain this requirement a little bit more? M-Business uses an
SA database to maintain system information (synch status, cached pages,
etc).

How does MS Access fit into this picture? Are you hoping to use it on
the client side in some manner?

Regards,

Hi Charles,

What does the MS-Access DB currently do that you want to replace with
M-Business? I'm not sure how to relate the two technologies you're
referring to:

===============================
M-Business
----------
Deliver Web-based content and applications to mobile devices rapidly and
cost-effectively — with minimal recoding — using M-Business Anywhere.

M-Business Anywhere provides a mobile content and application platform
that allows Web developers to leverage their existing skill sets and
open standards to develop and deploy fully interactive Web applications
with sync-and-go or wireless capabilities.


Microsoft Access
----------------
Access 2007 helps you effectively track, report, and share information
in a manageable environment, to make more informed business decisions.
With a library of pre-built tracking applications (database solutions)
and the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface, Access 2007 does not
require deep database knowledge or programming skills. Information can
be shared through Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services lists, where it
can be audited and backed up easily.
===============================

If you have an application that runs against Microsoft Access, you could
re-create the application as a web interface and distribute it using
M-Business (and use UltraLite as a database store via the UltraLite
ULPOD:
http://dcx.sybase.com/index.php#1101en/ulmbus_en11/ulmbus_en11.html ),
but I otherwise don't understand the technology requirement you're
looking for help with.

I have an inventory database; I created in MS-Access 2000, upgraded to
MS-Access 2003.



Now I want to add a web interface and wireless capabilities, so individuals
using the database can be updated through ANY compatible PDA and cell phone.



Let me know...

Hi Charles,

So, allow me to ask a few clarifying questions to maybe recommend a
strategy you could take:

1. Is the inventory database supposedly shared amongst all users? Or
does each user get to have a local copy of the database? Do they need to
be able to update it offline?

2. What is your target platform for this solution? (What's a "Compatible
PDA / cell phone"?)

3. Can users update the inventory database over the planned web
interface, or is it more of a notification mechanism, or...?

Regards,

Hello,
How are you doing today???

1. Yes, the database is supported by all users. No, they do not need to
update the database offline.

2. My target platform is the Palm Pre, and Treo Pro.

3. Right now, it's more of a notification solution, but soon to be a reply
and buy solution.




Thank you,

Hi Charles,

It sounds like you want to create a web-portal with an MS-Access
database back-end, that doesn't require offline access and doesn't
maintain an offline copy of the webpage. If this is the case, this could
simply be done in an online web-browser while the devices are connected
to the internet - this wouldn't require M-Business.

M-Business essentially can send copies of web pages down to devices and
store form submissions for when they are next synchronized. Optionally,
you can create XML message channels or use our UltraLite database with
MobiLink to perform database and data synchronization (for offline access).

*Note: We don't support MS-Access as a directly supported consolidated
database with MobiLink - you would have to switch consolidated database
technologies, or create some kind of SQL Anywhere-proxy-table-to-Access
kind of mechanism).

---

This would be the only benefit to using M-Business in this framework -
having a static webpage on the device without access to the MS-Access DB
information doesn't make much sense to me. Just creating a web
application on a server somewhere and having the device browser access
the online the website would seem to fit what you're trying to do...? Or
am I missing a requirement?

Cheers,
