What do I need?

Question:
A new user, no experience, but a self motivator, I need to know if I need a data base program, or is there one included in VB 5. How do I access it? Thanks!

Answer:
If you really want to learn about database programming, I would first recommend obtaining a copy of Access 97, which is included with Office 97 Professional Edition. Visual Basic has some basic tools for building databases; however, Access has all of the tools you need.

As far as learning VB and database programming, you might want to take a look at the Book Reviews section at Ask the VB Pro for recommendations on good VB books. There are a number of good VB5 books that do cover DB programming for beginners.
