VISUAL BASIC AND DATABASES is a tutorial that provides a detailed introduction to using Visual Basic for accessing and maintaining databases for desktop applications. Topics covered include: database structure, database design, Visual Basic project building, ADO .NET data objects (connection, data adapter, command, data table), data bound controls, proper interface design, structured query language (SQL), creating databases using Access, SQL Server and ADOX, and database reports. Actual projects developed include a books tracking system, a sales invoicing program, a home inventory system and a daily weather monitor. 

VISUAL BASIC AND DATABASES is presented using a combination of over 850 pages of color self-study notes and actual Visual Basic examples. No previous experience working with databases is presumed. It is assumed, however, that users of the product are familiar with the Visual Basic environment and the steps involved in building a Visual Basic application (such training can be gained from our LEARN VISUAL BASIC course). 

VISUAL BASIC AND DATABASES requires a Microsoft Windows 7 or the Windows 8 operating system and Microsoft Visual Basic Professional 2012. The Visual Basic source code, databases and all needed multimedia files are available for download from the publisher's website (KidwareSoftware.com) after you register this book.

Review:

"The Visual Basic & Databases Tutorial was the best tutorial and samples I found to use Visual Basic".Lester Torres Rivera, Teacher, Puerto Rico

"I just want to thank you for the many tutorials that I have ordered from your company over the past decade.  Your tutorials have been instrumental in allowing me, a secondary school teacher in Ontario, to learn what I need to know in order to conduct my own High School Computer Science Classes inVisual Basic and Visual C#.  I thank you, and urge you to keep up the excellent work. It has been instrumental in helping me learn and grow as a teacher." - Alan Payne, TA,  Blakelock High School, Oakville, ON

"Visual Basic and Databases was well organized and the various projects that I had to create in order to learn the material was exhaustive and intensive (which is good!).   The course was fun, entertaining and rewarding." - Ray Torres, Miami, FL

"I really enjoyed the Visual Basic & Databases tutorial. The database connection examples really helped me." - Bruce Chin, Developer, Toronto, Ontario
