developing application for Palm

Posted on 2004-09-05

I need to develop an application for a Palm. I program in Visual Basic, but I don't know if I can program in this language for Palm. The application must have a form and when the user inputs the data, it has to save the information in a database (or file), so then I can download that database file with the information to my PC and export it to an Access file.
I hope you can guide me. I don't know if it's possible to handle databases in Palm. Neither if Visual Basic is a good choice to do this. I wait for your advice, help, links, etc.
Thank you very very much ;)

With VB & VB.NET you can only develop Pocket PC applications. Palm applications are not supported. If you wish to create an application for Palm OS then try using CodeWarrior :

I just saw that metrowerks products seems to be for C/C++ applications. AppForge is VB/VB.Net apps.
