Reading Access files on Ipaq?

I have a HP Ipaq h2200.

On my PC I have an Microsoft Access and a few Access databases. When I
setup the synchronisation between my PC and my Ipaq it listed Access
database files. When I click on an Access database file on my Ipaq it says
"There is no application associated with [filename]" it then tells me to run
the application first.

Is there a program already on the Ipaq that will read my Access database
files? If not do you know of any free programs that will read my Access
files on my Ipaq?

I hope you can help and I appreciate any help or information given.

Thanks!

The Ipaq has its reasons for that.

There is no Access application in the PPC operating system. If you want to
access these databases from the Pocket PC, you should use a third party
development tool such as:

- Visual CE from www.syware.com
- Handbase from www.ddhsoftware.com
- Pocket Database from http://pocketdb.pocket-innovations.com/

I wrote these in my personal order of preference, but feel free to choose
your own. You can also take a look at the O'Reilly Developer's Weblog where
my fellow MVP Todd Ogasawara suggests some additional names, at the URL
