How would I connect and query a MySql database
(and also do UPDATE and INSERT) from a VB 6.0 program, also how do I get it to check to see if I'm connected (to the internet) before it connects to the database?

I have never done it so please post your results.
As an additonal note, if you get the activestate perl dev kit ($200, free 1m eval) you can write a dll that VB can use. I have written a perl dll and accessed it with VB. It took about 8-12 hrs (I am not particularly experienced with VB in genral, dll's in particular) for me to get the hang of modifiying perl to run in VB, get the Package&Delployment Wizard to work, ect. For $200 this might be the path of least resistance.
