Writing DB Programs

Question:
I am new to programing & was wondering if you can write database programs with VB or do you have to use a third party DB program like Access or Data Base etc?

Answer:
You don't have to use Access...you can use VB to build DB programs. VB also includes a Data Manager program which can create basic databases. However, Access is very useful in setting up the databases, creating indices, queries, etc. I would strongly recommend getting both for best results. If you want to "roll your own" databases you need to look at the following in the help file or documentation:

  • User Defined Types
  • The file access commands OPEN, RANDOM (goes with OPEN) and GET
