Satellite forms sync
Posted on 2000-02-28
I've developed a simple application for the palm pilot which collects various bits of information.
What I want to do now is distribute this application to about 20 people who have palm pilots and send them off collecting data from various clients.
Up to this point everything is fine, until, that is, I want to combine all the information collected into one database (whether it be Access / comma separated or whatever).
Has anybody done this before, 'cos as far as I can see, the hotsync function syncs each palm to it's own profile, therefore, having 20 different copies of the data.
I know that I can export the data and combine it myself, but we want to make this process as seamless as possible, so that the users at the end of the day just have to plonk their palm into the cradle and press a button, whether it be on the cradle or on the PC desktop.
