Application must retrieve the pda file, make some data checks to a database and then do some processess before delete the file.  The question es how access to a device: Something like "\\mobile device\files\filex.txt".....

you will have to copy the data when the phone is connected to the PC.

1. Use active sync and set up a rule to copy it to a specifix location.
2. build an application using files to copy and delete the data from the phone.

Once copied u have to use files and manipulate  the data in VB.

I dont know what kind of operations u want to perfrom on the file.??

I will explain again the problem because is not about activesync or a simple sincronization question between pda and pc.

We have one pc and 6 pda. We put a pda on craddle and manually start a visualbasic program (or c, or c# or vb.net but take in consideration is vb6 ) . Then i must select some options in this program (this is done) and push copy and program generates a file with some data who must be copied on \application\xapp\ directory of the mobile device.  Not syncronization, not activesinc, not any other 3rd party program  must be used. I know few methods to do that with those tools, but we must doit coding in visualbasic.  

Thanks
