You're going to need different database versions. Remove the external files from the ipad version of the database, since the importing is only going to occur on the server, then the server version is the only version that needs the import module.
I have not used Mirrorsync but most sync application I've seen, use a middle file (2nd file on device) to handle the syncing for the same reason. The file that is need to sync to is only available when the device is connected to the server.

When the file is opened as a standalone file, as soon as the file opens several dialog boxes come up asking for the missing files. Is there a way to by pass these dialog boxes?
Get rid of the TOs for the files it doesn't need. And any External Data Source entries as well.
Mike and Schamblee,
You are correct. I ended up splitting the file into a server and iPad/standalone versions. Then used 360 Works MirrorSync to move data between the two versions.
Thanks for the suggestions.
