How to open an .PDB file in palm V? - access to mobileDB converter

I use Palm V. I have converted an Microsoft Access 97 database (mdb) to an a palm format with the program Access to mobileDB converter (freeware on ZDnet). The file is downloaded on the palm. I can see it with the following steps : home - app - info . I have the following information : v3.0 . 293 records - size 34K.

     If it is a PDB then you will only be able to open it through a application on the palm.  If you have no such applications that will work try AportisDoc or a similar document reader.

     If there was a application to do so that came with the converter definately use that.

Download MobileDB Lite, also available at ZDNet, and install mobiledblite.prc on your Palm. I believe that's all.

To be able to edit the database you need the full version of MobileDB.

The full version of MobileDB is available at http://www.palmgear.com/software/showsoftware.cfm?prodID=1384 and costs $14.95.

The free version is available at http://www.palmgear.com/software/showsoftware.cfm?prodID=1464

Once you install the mobiledb.prc file, launching MobileDB on the Palm should show the database you converted.

Excuse me but was that fair?

I posted an answer as a comment. Then some 20 hours later David posts basically the same answer in a few more words and receives the points. My answer was completely adequate for anyone but a complete novice. I believe this should be corrected!

I have no problem with you getting the points. I just gave him a point and slick solution. If ludoverstraete wants to give you the points, he can request it through the Support area off the home page.

Personally, I'd always opt for assuming the person posting the question is a complete novice. If it took you 30 more seconds to give him exactly what he needed, I wouldn't have posted.
