Access & VB Combination
Can i combine an access database with a visual basic front end
Re: Access & VB Combination
Absolutely. Indeed, for a long time (I'm really dating myself here folks!),
Access was sort of the "assumed" database for VB applications.
The easiest approach is usually just to set a reference to the Microsoft DAO
Object Library - much as you would probably do with ADO if you were
connecting to SQL Server or some other non-Access data source. Keep in mind
that sticking with ADO though (which you can also use to connect with JET
(aka Access) databases will probably put you in a somewhat better position
should you later decide you want to port your code over to use SQL Server or
some other major RDBMS system.
