- Prepares the Access database for synchronization by adding the tracking columns and tables
- Exports the database to the device in SDF format (either SQL CE 2.0 or SQL Mobile)
- Tracks the changes on both ends and
- Merges them according to a very simple rule: the Access database always wins
There is another C# sample (Prepare) that you may use to prepare and "unprepare" Access databases and I have used it together win an end-user sample that I am also shipping (this time it's a VB sample that I will port to C#) that does steps 2 to 4 and is supposed to act as a template for a custom solution.
