We put a copy of MS Access 2007 database on a stand alone tablet PC to collect data, and then plug into our network to synchronize the database to the one (another copy of the same database) on the network.

We would like to know the options and the best way to do this.

    If you are using an accdb file then you have to write the complete synchronisation process yourself; ACcess gives you nothing.

    With an mdb file you might be able to use Access/Jet Replication.
