    Question Database Confusion

    Hi All,

    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.
