Can SyncToy synchronize MS Access Replicas into the master RRS feed

  • Question

  • I thought SyncToy should be able to synchronize MS Access Replicas into the master automatically?  Does anyone know if that is the case?  Is there any special handling to get it work?

  • SyncToy can sync the Access db as long as you do not actually have it opened and locked.  Keep in mind this is really not the most efficient way of replicating Access databases as it would copy the entire database file every time a change is made and in the event you made a change on the other side you would not have a gret conflict resolution policy to merge the changes.


    If you want something more effective you might check out the microsoft sync framework.  There is a good webcast (if I say so myself :-)  on the Access sync topic here.
