Sync SQL Server Express 2005 and SQL Server Mobile 2005.

Hi
I have an application which runs on a desktop.
I want to synchronise the DB with a PDA app, which also uses SQL Server 2005
(mobile and express).

How can I connect to the Desktop DB, from the PDA, in order to check if I
should transfer data, in my manual syncronization routine.

Any examples of this being done, or details of best practices for this would
be much appreciated

Thanks

The most common method, at least from my experience, is to timestamp the
tables that have to be synced. You can then write an "update" routine to
sync the information that is newer than the last sync point. This can be uni
or bi directional.

Hi I have an application which runs on a desktop. I want to synchronise the DB with a PDA app, which also uses SQL Server 2005 (mobile and express). I believe that I will need to write my own synchronization application, in order to update the data across the machines. My questions are: - Is there a way of picking up an event that will notify my application when the PDA is connected to the desktop??

Just found out that there is an Express Products edition for VS 2005, and it is free for downloading from Microsoft web site. Is this just an evaluation version? Or a real VS.net 2005 for small projects? If we just want to develop ASP.net web pages using VB.net, will these Express Products good enough for our needs? Any limitations? TIA, Jeffrey

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
