I have an external Sql database which I need to send data to from an app I'm making. All tutorials I've found use php + mysql, which I'm not familiar with. I assume it is possible, however I need some help getting started. Cheers

Use Webservices.
Android has classes for Post and Get request.
Let me give you some idea..

This will send data to your server.Handle it your way from server side.

I figured it out yesterday. I wrote a web service using .net and I've connected to it using the ksoap package in Android. I then pass in some arguments which form the query and then write to database. Once I realised I had to set the service up as an application with IIS it was all working fine.
