    VB & SQL Server as a package


    Hi,
    I'm new to using sql server and vb. What I need to know is:
    Can I package a sql server database with Visual Basic like I would Ms-Access
    and Vb so that the user does not need to separately install SQL server aswell
    as the vb application I develop.
    Also if this is not possible what alternative databases/methods do you recommend?
    I can't use basic recordsets as there are allot of searching and querying
    in the vb system I am currently developing.

    Thanks for any help

    regards,

    Pete

    Use MSDE as your database engine for distribution.
