Copying a database to your Windows Mobile device

Any existing SQL Anywhere database can be copied to your Windows Mobile device using the method described in this section. However, you must keep in mind that any database features that are not supported on Windows Mobile will not work when you copy the database to your Windows Mobile device. See SQL Anywhere feature support on Windows Mobile.

To copy a database to your Windows Mobile device

  1. Connect the Windows Mobile device to your computer.

  2. Open Windows Explorer on your computer.

  3. Browse to the directory on your computer containing the database that you want to copy.

  4. Right-click the database file and choose Copy.

  5. Open a second instance of Windows Explorer.

  6. Browse to the directory on your Windows Mobile device where you want to store the database file.

    Tip

    When starting a database on your Windows Mobile device using the Server Startup Options window, you can only use Browse to search for the database file in the My Documents directory.

    If the database is not stored in the My Documents directory, you must type the path of the database in the Database field of the Server Startup Options window.

  7. Right-click an open area of the Windows Explorer window for your Windows Mobile device and then choose Paste.

    The file is copied to the Windows Mobile device.
