I have a question, I'm new to programming and would like to create a fairly simple program that will have Text boxes that we will want to change/update the content in. For example contact information, first middle last name, address, and phone numbers. I've gotten the layout down by just mussing around with VB
, but don't know if there will be a database connection? At some point I could also see the need to push this data to a database for housing multiple units. I would like to know if there is a book that anyone could suggest, I see lots of VB
books out there but am not sure exactly what might be more helpful for me in this situation. Also below is a quick idea of what I want to see with the program.
User inputs information such as contact info, favorite places to eat, favorite locales and bars, yadda yadda. This will be a combination of Drop down fields, and blank Text boxes, tabs etc.
There is a seperate section (tab or maybe just a combo of buttons) that can lock/unlock the data fields so we will only display the information from the text fields, and another for modifying the data.
Data--I would also maybe like to be able to export the data to a file for merging with a large database that would house each particular users information.
Also before the flame wars start up, I'm not a programmer, I don't know your language, so if anything above is impossible or stupid or whatever just don't fly off the handle.
