  • I need to connect the local ms-access database

    Local mean client side?

    If yes then currently its not possible.

    If No that's mean ms-access database on the server then its possible to access in server pass data to SL app through WCF/Web service.

  • Hi Amyo, Thanks for the reply. Yes I was trying to do it for client-side.... .. Well, but that wasn't a constraint...Please provide me the sail-through to connect the ms-access database with the Silverlight Datagrid, I have no idea of using web-services, is there an alternate to this??
