Hi. I have built an application that has a central sql server 2008 database.

A user that accesses the application via tablet PC is having intermittant connectivity problems accessing the central database with their mobile connection (using mobile broadband).

I want to create a local copy of the application and database on the tablet so that they can use the application locally and then transmit the data to a central server when they choose.

I am looking at using SQL Server replication and having a local SQL server express 2008 or SQL compact edition.

Can you please let me know if you have setup a similar solution. - if so - was it straight forward or did you have lots of challenges ?

Did you use SQL Server express 2008 or SQL compact edition on the tablet ?
Is sql server replication solid and reliable or are there lots of problems ?
