Dear all,

I am developing a sales management application for small business use. Besides delivering program with MSDE or Access, is there any way to store data without database It is because I find it troublesome to deliver database togather.

Please give some advice. Thanks.

If your data not very large, you can use XML files.

But if your data is important and you must secure it , you have to encrypt your data

Javad Khadivi is right.

If your classes aren't that complicated look up for XMLSerializer.
