    VB script for SQL database


    Hi, I was someone could give me some direcion on a project I am doing.
    I am trying to distribute an SQL database. I have have coursework in C++
    and visual basic but do not own Visual studios,just Visual InterDev.
    I need a program in visual basic or visual C++ that displays information
    from the SQL database.
    The database can be MSDE Microsoft Data Engine.I need to write (or have someone
    partially write) the program as well as an installation program to redist
    the necessary files to run the program. (i.e. The exe itself, the VB runtime,
    the MSDE engine, and any other required files)
    Since I am just starting I do not have access to alot of resources and am
    looking for the most efficient way to accomplish the task.
    The task is to redistribute an SQL database thru the internet to other cmputers
    that may or may not have SQL installed so that they may query it.
    Can you be of any assistance? I would appreciate any help you can give.

    Jim,
    A couple of questions:

    1) Is it a requirement that you use SQL Server as the databse? Would and
    Access Database be acceptable - the reasoin for asking is the Access is the
    Native database which Visual Basic supports, and as such, there is NO REQUIREMENT
    for the User to actuall own Access outright, your program can create and
    manage the Access Database files totally independent of an actual installation
    of the full Access program.

    2) Does the data that you are going to be working wqith already exist
    or will you be starting out from the very beginning. If it already exists,
    how much data are you going to be dealing with?

    As a aside, you will be much more likely to get the assitance that you
    need, as you say "Since I am just starting ", if you post your questions
    in the VB.Getting.Started discussion group.
