    in vb making a database, getting info out of database ect..


    hi, this is my first day working on visual basic. I have many years expreance in HTML, and very little in php. But my question is, i am trying to make a program where people type in inforation then press submit and give each thing a number(the person assignes the number). Then use that number to get the info. This is my first day using visual basic but have about 6 hours in. I havnt found any tutorials, or information that can help me make this program yet. So where should i start, because i think i have a lot of work to do. And do you think i could make this in about a month?

    Thanks for you help
    -Gary

    For a simple tutorial on how to connect to a db with vb, open up a data control on the form and click help on it.

    Hi!

    There are a lot of different ways to get data out of a database in VB. The approach I recommend is ADO via OLE DB or ODBC, (where OLE DB is the fastest way if you use common databases such as Microsoft Access).

    I can give you some sample code for ADO/OLE DB/MS Access if you want to!
