I have an application that builds a .sdf Sqlq Server Compact Edition file I want to view the file on a desktop computer How can I do it ??
If there is no simple way to do this how can I write a C# application to convert the .sdf file to .mdb file so I will be able to use Microsoft Access to view it.

You can connect to your SQL Compact Edition database using SQL Server 2005 Management Studio or Visual Studio 2005 SP1. If you need to convert from .SDF to MS Access (or vice-versa), check out the Data Port Wizard tool from one of the other MVPs, JP Figueroa:

You can also try SQL Server Express edition if you do not have SQL Server 2005.
