Using changing external SQLite database on phone

Jul 20 2020 10:46 AM

I created the Xamarin Android - Working with Existing DB project on Visual Studio 2017.

Even though I put a SQLite database (MyDB.db)  in the resource directory it appears that the program just takes the information from the database and puts it into some place on the phone and uses that instead of the one in the resource directory.
 
If I change the actual database, like adding a record from outside the app. it doesn't show up in the app that's deployed on the phone.
 
What if I have a database that has to be changed externally. Can an Android app use a database that's live and not stored on the phone?
 
Can that be done.?
Thanks.
