    ->Re: Any really good books on VB 6 Databases?


    Hi Peter,

    Have you tried Amazon.com ? If not, have a look. Most of the books avialable
    on amazon have reviews. Maybe you'll find something you can use.
    You can also try www.ak2.com.au

    Happy hunting,
    Johan

    PS ! The springboks are gonna whip your boys Saturday......

    Hello

    Thanks for that

    I don't follow sport so I don't even know what the Springboks do :-)
