WinCE is not listed as a supported platform for MSDE or Access:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;324998
http://www.microsoft.com/office/previous/access/2002sysreq.asp

Nor is there a "Pocket" version of Access: (the downloadable executable is a word doc)

i guess SQL CE is the best database for winCe. It was built for winCE.

Anyways, last question, is it possible to access Access database in WinCE?

SQL CE works well on WinCE. I have just used it for a .NET pocketpc application without any major dramas. Note that it only supports a single open connection.

How do you plan to connect to the Access database? Do you mean that you want to access a remote Access database from a WinCE platform? Do you plan to have other components created that will handle this connection?

Probably the easiest way to connect to a remote Access database would be to create something such as a web service operating on the machine with the database on it, and create the connection locally between your web service and the database. Then you simply need to connect your pocketpc to the web service programatically.

Otherwise, I'm not sure how you are planning on creating a connection from your WinCE to Access, unless you want to create a socket to the machine hosting the DB and then create a connection from there? That would be a lot of programming...

Would a web service solution be possible in what you are trying to do?
