hi
i'm new here, still using the trial version to see if this works for me but so far so good,
1. i need to know that installing HanDBase in one deskop(to use as source data) and use by different users using Pocket PC will it work, or i'll need to get licences for all my PDA's?
2. when different PDA users need to synchronise data into my source deskop how do i do that without overwritting data loaded by the first user.

thanks

Hi there,

Thanks for your interest! You need a license for each PDA that you have. The packages like HanDBase Plus and HanDBase Professional include licenses for a single PDA and a single Desktop. You can purchase additional licenses for either as needed.

In regards to #2, each users' data is kept separate on the desktop so they don't interfere with each other. If there is a database you'd like to sync to both of them, you can override this and use a shared location for both of them to sync to.

Hope this helps!

Hi again,

Thanks for the additional information. Will they all be synchronizing with the same PC, or each with their own PC? If they are all syncing with the same PC, my recommendation would be to purchase 1 copy of HanDBase Professional and 4 additional copies of HanDBase (standard edition (eg, not Plus, Professional or Enterprise). This way they can all have their licensed handheld version and then the main computer has Professional which includes the 5th user's handheld license, and the Access syncing conduit and desktop software.

So basically, 1 of these: http://www.ddhsoftware.com/description. ... 1&plat=ppc
and 4 of these: http://www.ddhsoftware.com/description. ... 1&plat=ppc
Hope this makes sense!
