    I have an application using OpenAccess and have to be able to support full SQL Server and SQL Compact.  Depending on the user's environment, I will need to use one or the other.

    Is it possible to just change the connection string to point to one or the other of the databases and have OpenAccess still operate?

    The schemas are the same between the to databases.

    Hi Daniel Woodard,
    Yes, that will be possible, change the connection string plus the backend type on the backend configuration instance that you use to create the context.

    It is better to implement against  CE, esp. the missing sub-selects in CE makes it necessary to tweak the Linq statements partially.
