I need to create a tablet application to collect field data and email it to analysts in the home office. HanDBase looks like a terrific product but my question is about the transfer of data to the home office. Can this be done with HanDBase?

Thanks for your question. Assuming you're using Android and/or iPhone, there are a bunch of ways you could transfer the data - while viewing each record you can choose to email the record. You can choose to send it either as a text output or in CSV (Comma separated values). You can also email a group of records (eg, all the records within the filter range using a menu option on the List view.

If you're using custom forms you can also send a PDF of the form output as a record via email.

Lastly, you can email the database file itself via the Choose DB screen. It will let you send the database file or a CSV file.

Let me know if there is something else you're looking for functionality wise!
