Visual Basic Database Tutorial - Part 5, Page 6
Wow, we sure covered a lot of ground today!
I babbled about good database design for a while, and then we delved into Access to create our very own tables complete with keys and relationships. Finally, we tested our supercool design... and it worked!
Next week we'll be taking this project further. I'll show you how to easily build your Visual Basic application around a good database design... using a few little-known control properties.
Tune in at the same time next week for more of the same. Until then, I'm your host Karl Moore saying goodnight for tonight... goodnight!
