Wireless access technology has made much impact in the growth and development of corporate information systems. This paper presents how a web-to-database production tool was used to achieve a real time wireless access to NAFDAC corporate database. An online version of the database was created using MySQL along with both client and server side software that capture queries from and generate reports to remote mobile monitoring operator devices in real time. The client sends a request using a web browser in the WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) enabled mobile device and receives a response from the database. This is done by a web server, which supplies the response in a HTML format to the user's mobile device.
