I use DocumentsToGo
http://www.dataviz.com/products/documentstogo/
to sync various kinds of files and my ancient (M125) Palm.
TTBOMK this does not have an Access interface but Access can be programmed
to create and read files that allow it to interact with DocumentsToGo.
DocumentsToGo comes free with Palm devices (maybe others?) often on the
second CD of stuff no one ever looks at.

Perhaps, this may not be what you are looking for, but I find it helpful.

Check out http://www.ddhsoftware.com/handbase.html. This may be what
you need. There are other vendors with products that may assist also.

You could also check out http://www.tucows.com/ and do a search for
products they have listed.
