I am trying to develop a program for the pocket PC written in C# that allows the user to enter where their shots are hitting on a target and then stores the data and calculates MOA for the day. I am making this because of my inability to remember how I shot the day or week before with different rifles. With this program I could get more done per range trip and track how Im shooting.

My question is fo you know the easiest way to store the data, I pretty much have the rest written, I just need to some help in this area. I am a newb programmer so any help would be appreciated!

Store the data in XML files on the device. .Net's XML support is pretty impressive.

Ive been trying to figure out XML serialization, but it seems pretty tricky. I need to find a way to serialize an entry object that includes an arraylist into XML

First, assemble a DataSet (ds) and then do this to write it:

ds.WriteXml(filename, XmlWriteMode.WriteSchema);

Sweetness! thanks DVD tracker... that worked badass. If I get this program working like I want it maybe I can donate it too ARFCOM and people can improve on it.

Wait, now Im running into a new problem, the bullet hole objects that I am including inside an arraylist within the Entry object cannot be serialized. The debugger says I should use the XMLInclude to fix the problem....any hints on this?
