Visual Basic is the #1 programming tool in the world and 70% of VB applications involve a database. However, there is little advanced information for VB database programmers that has been proven in the real world. This book has broad coverage of many issues relating to advanced database design and implementation using VB6. The main feature is the demonstration of the 3 tier solution, enabling more scalable applications. From the coverage of 2 tier solutions a thorough grounding of SQL Server 7, ADO and Database design is provided. The graduation to 3 tier applications is achieved through a practical demonstration of the techniques learned.
