Default Access DB on Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

I have several Access databases on which I track various collections I have -- for example CD collection, DVD collection, book collection, model train collection. I don't really need fancy capabilities - just the ability to easily query the list and view the record details.

One of the reasons to do this is to be able to check to see if I have something (or have something on my want list), when I am in an appropriate location. For this the list needs to be portable.

In the past I've done this by have a "version" of the list on my Sony Clie (Palm OS). But I'm going to discontinue lugging around my Clie, and pass it to my wife to replace her second generation Palm device.

What I'd really like to do is to "port" these lists to my Blackberry 7105t. Then I would always have it since I always have my Blackberry. Is there a application for a Blackberry which would allow me to do this, and to easily sync with the Access DB to keep it up to date?

Thanks in advance...

That would be the best option. Well in my case it is. If you have a huge db, why bother putting it on the BB? Just link it on the web.
