Well, first, you have to decide where the database is and what kind of
database it is. There is a lot of information floating around on ADOCE,
which is what you would use to put your data in the built-in database format
of Windows CE or to use the Pocket Access format. We've been over and over
methods of accessing desktop databases from handheld devices already, so you
should look that up in the newsgroup archives via Google. There is also SQL
Server CE which can store the data locally and synchronize periodically, or
connect continuously to SQL Server.
Your language choice is going to depend on what you know. Can you already
program in eVB *and* eVC? If so, I'd choose eVC since that gives you an
upgrade path when devices come out with Windows CE.NET inside them. You can
also use the .NET Compact Framework from either C# or VB.NET to implement
your code. It's still in its early life, however.
