Is is possible to export data from sql directly to a sql ce .sdf file?  I am trying to distribute data to 20 or so pocet pc's which will not be on the network.  They will work remotely and access data via a dialup, internet or PC anywhere.  I am concerned that RDA will be too difficult since all the pocet pc's will be attached to one desktop pc.

Unfortunately no.  The newest version of SQLCe that will interact with SQL2005 will allow some more flexible options, but until then, you don't have too many options.

Ok, thanks.  I figure I'll just send csv files back and forth.  I could import them with a filestream object and fill up a sql ce database to work with.  This will happen when the app loads.  I hope it won't be too slow.  If you have any comments, I'd appreciate them.
