Hi Wendy,

I don't believe you can run an Omnis application directly on a hand held...

I've used Citrix, and I know of Terminal services being used to run a 
standard Omnis application on the server, Citrix or TS server, both of 
which used Barcode scanning.

You seem to be able to run a citrix or TS client on most devices these 
days, android, ipad, iphone...

The only thing is, if you don't have a Citrix server or TS server, this 
may price the solution out of the equation?

Otherwise, your pretty much stuck with an Omnis web solution, clearly 
this could be just intranet... but the number of users may make this tricky?
