Complete Newbie trying to learn some programming.
I am using Visual Studio Express 2012 Desktop.
I am just starting with a simple application that prints information we require to a label printer from a preset table within the application.
I have designed the look and feel I need for the application. The Menu, Sub Menu's etc.
I need to now attach a database though. I was hoping I could use a database that is self contained in the same directory of the program so that if needed I can just copy the entire directory to another pc and it will just work.
The next step though, I want to list each column header and then all of the information of our stickers so that when a menu item is selected it can grab the relevant info.
Suggestions would be great on the best database to use to achieve this.
Thanks in advance
Re: Database Confusion
If you want to be able to store and copy the DB easily then you should probably use an Access Database as it is a single file and requires no server to be running.
There are several options for working with databases, a quick search should turn up many examples.
