SQLite and Android devices

Hi Ralph,

Thanks for the information. I tried it and now I can look inside my Android app.

But my main problem is that my DB can’t be opened by the program I installed in my Android device. That the same for HTML files. Is it a question of permission I have to get or something like?
You know, I am not very experienced in Android devices.

Regards,

Alain
