Like many other posters, I'm planning a move from the Windows world to a Mac, mainly because I've had it with Microsoft over-charging for rubbish software (Vista, anyone?).

I've solved most of the software issues moving from one platform to the other, but one has me stuck -- database software and a corresponding client for Windows Mobile.

You see, I currently run MS Access on my PC and an Access front-end called Data on the Run (DotR) on my i-Mate JasJam PDA/phone running Windows Mobile 5. I need database access while out on the road for work, and having only recently bought the JasJam I'm not in a position to buy a new PDA.

I had though that Filemaker Pro and Filemaker Mobile for Pocket PC would work, but the tech support for Mark/Space's Missing Sync tell me that it is not possible to sync the two programs using their software. HanDBase seems only to offer a Mac desktop client for Palm devices, not PPC ones.

Can anyone offer a solution? Bear in mind, I'm not a database techie and I have no desire to spend hours building a complicated set of forms & tables. The nice thing about DotR was that it was really simple, and I would prefer something just as straightforward.

Thanks in advance!
