I donot have much expertise on the subject but I think you can do the same by connecting your Database through ODBC connectivity than direct connection. In that way your database will be only on one Server and all can use the same by just using the program from their own console.

Following are a handful things u have to know about VB file handling

for more details...go to http://www.5starsupport.com/info/vb.htm

File Handling (Generic)

While VB is working on a better approach (FileSystemObject), the built-in file handling statements are still the only way to access data other than through the VB database capabilities. Your skills in this area can make or break your ability to work with various formats. The OPEN/CLOSE statements are critical to success, but the LOF, EOF, and LEN functions are used even more often! It's also a given that you'll use the DIR function regularly.
Dir - Returns a filename that matches a pattern
temp$ = Dir ("*.*")
CurDir - Returns the current directory
temp$ = CurDir
MkDir - Creates a directory
mkdir ( "newdirectoryname" )
ChDir - Changes the current directory to a new location
chdir ( "newdirectoryname" )
ChDrive - Changes the current drive
ChDirve "A"
RmDir - Removes the indicated directory
rmdir ( "directoryname" )
Freefile - Returns an unused file handle
i = freefile
Open - Opens a file for access, locking it from other applications
open "filename" for input as #1
Close - Closes a file so that other applications may access it
close #1
LOF - Returns the length of a file in bytes
i = lof ( #1 )
EOF - Returns a boolean value to indicate if the end of a file has been reached
statusvariable = eof ( #1 )
Name As - Renames a file
name "filename1" as "filename2"
Kill - Deletes a file
kill "filename"
Fileattr - Returns attribute information about a file
i = int ( tempvariable )
GetAttr - Returns attributes of a file or directory
i = GetAttr("c:\windows\temp")
SetAttr - Sets the attributes of a file
SetAttr pathname, vbHidden
Reset - Closes all disk files opened by the OPEN statement
Reset
FileDateTime - Returns data file was created or last edited
FileDateTime ( filename )
FileLen - Returns length of file in bytes
FileLen ( filename )
FileCopy - Copies a file to a new name
FileCopy sourcefile, destinationfile
Lock - Controls access to a part or all of a file opened by OPEN
Lock #1
UnLock - Restores access to a part or all of a file opended by OPEN
UnLock #1
Width # - Set the output line width used by the OPEN statement
Width #2, 80
File Handling - ASCII-specific

While VB is working on a better approach (FileSystemObject), the built-in file handling statements are still the only way to access data outside of a data base. Your skills in this area can make or break your ability to work with various formats. The OPEN/CLOSE statements are critical to success, but the LOF, EOF, and LEN functions are necessary to build useful code.
Line Input - Reads an entire line of ASCII text
line input #1, tempvariable$
Write - Puts data in a file, with separators for the data
write #1, tempvariable$
Print - Puts data in a file with no separators
print #1, tempvariable$
Spc - Used in a print statement to move a number of spaces
Print #2, var1; spc(15); var2
Tab - Used in a print statement to move to TAB locations
Print #2, var1; Tab(20); var2
File Handling - Binary-specific

VB also support features which allow you to access a file on a byte-by-byte basis. The good thing about it is that you have more control, the bad thing is that you may have to write more code. Generally, a programmer will use the option (ASCII or Binary access) according to the least code he has to write. For binary access the Get/Put are equivalent to the Line Input and Print functions used in ASCII text file access. The big difference between the two is that binary access will read (Get) an exact number of bytes of data, and the reading can start at any byte within the file.
Get - Reads data from a file
get #1, anyvariable
Put - Puts data into a file
put #1, anyvariable
Seek - Moves the current pointer to a defined location in a file
seek #1, 26
Input
input #1, anyvariable
Loc - Returns current position with an open file
i = Loc(#2)

How to send sms to mobile thourgh vb application


Hey one my friend did simmilar project during accademics
Just a modification is i guess they have used JAVA

anyways coming back to your query, i guess you will require the device driver which will establish a communication between your mobile & computer
(if you are having nokia handset then i guess you will require NOKIA SDK`s for development)

So i personally feel this is quit complecated to design it in VB, so i think you should switch to JAVA
