Would Compact Edition be a viable option to host a database on a laptop that when connected to the network that database would be updated from a server database.
The situation is our users sometimes need to access a mailing list, but cannot get online to retreive the list. We want to store a copy of the database on his/her laptop and then when he/she does connect to the network the database would be updated with any changes.
Originally, we thought SQL 2005 Express would be our best option. However, it appears Compact would use less laptop resources.
