A steep learning curve!

This forum is for application developers who are integrating HanDBase into their solutions via the HanDBase API (HAPI) or other means. It's also a great place to discuss runtime development.

A steep learning curve!

Want to be able to get (maybe attach/link/sync/import/export) data from and to my access 2000 database so that I can view, and edit, it on both desktop and android, perhaps using dropbox or some such. Before I buy your product can you confirm I can do this. Is it difficult?

Thanks for writing.

You can sync HanDBase databases on an Android to Access 2000 databases on a Windows computer using the HanDBase Professional for Android/Windows addon. The sync would occur via a local WiFi connection.

You can purchase a copy of the Professional addon here:


Note that HanDBase for Android is not included in this addon, and is available for purchase from Google Play.

The following document details the basics of syncing:

Additionally, you can use CSV format files as an "intermediary" if you want to exchange data via email or Dropbox.
Kind Regards,

Did you ever get the pc version of HDB? It can take some effort to sync and merge data but I think it's better then what is out there today.
