sharing database files

Discuss OrbForms Designer and PocketC Architect

I have created a Demographics program with OrbForms Designer.
How do I share the database file it creates with another PDA using the same program or even email the database to another

If you set the database's backup bit it will get backed up during next Hotsync.
A copy of it can then be found in the Backup (C:\Program Files\Palm\Username or somethng like that) folder of the user in question, and get email as an attachment.

Someone (do the search yourself) recently posted an example of how the built-in Palm Mail program/conduit could be used, by adding a record to the Mail programs out-box. This approach still depends on a Hotsync being carried out.

Thanks Samps
As a matter of fact Jeremy Dewey told me the same thing this morning. I tried using the back up bit and it works like a charm. I do appreciate your suggestion about the mail conduit and will search for it immediately.
Thanks to all the members in the forum and the development team for pocket c and orb forms
