Hi All,

I am completely new to this field.  Currently going through a couple books now on Ios development.  I have a question just so I know where to focus my attention.

I currently have this winform project that accesses a MS SQL database where the SQL database does all the heavy lifting calculations with Stored Procedures.

I'm thinking adding a iPhone app to display this data in charts, graphs, grids, and so on.

Before I get into any actual project, can I access MS SQL in iOS?

I've been googling it and I don't see a clearcut way... like a few lines of code from my c# to connect and call querys.

I see something about writing a webservice... but people are saying it is difficult and shouldn't go this route.

Other searches are saying use SQLite... but then I'll have to re-do ALLLLL my stored procedure and learn a new SQL database code, while I have a hard enough time with MS SQL.

What is the norm for apps to communication to a DB?  And can I just connect to my MS SQL?

thanks for the info!!!
