​​VISUAL BASIC AND DATABASES - PROFESSIONAL EDITION ​(Table of Contents) is a tutorial that provides a detailed introduction to using Visual Basic for accessing and maintaining databases for desktop applications. Topics covered include: database structure, database design, Visual Basic project building, ADO .NET data objects (connection, data adapter, command, data table), data bound controls, proper interface design, structured query language (SQL), creating databases using Access, SQL Server and ADOX, and database reports. Actual projects developed include a books tracking system, a sales invoicing program, a home inventory system and a daily weather monitor (Project Screenshots). 


VISUAL BASIC AND DATABASES is presented using a combination of over 850 pages of FULL-COLOR self-study notes and actual Visual Basic examples. No previous experience working with databases is presumed. It is assumed, however, that users of the product are familiar with the Visual Basic environment and the steps involved in building a Visual Basic application (such training can be gained from our LEARN VISUAL BASIC ​course). 


VISUAL BASIC AND DATABASES requires a Microsoft Windows 7 or the Windows 8 operating system, Microsoft Word and Visual Basic Professional 2012. The Visual Basic source code, databases and all needed multimedia files are available for download after purchase.  The newest 2015  Edition can be found here.​

What others have been saying about our Visual Basic & Databases Books and Tutorials:​


 

"I just want to thank you for the many tutorials that I have ordered from your company over the past decade. Your tutorials have been instrumental in allowing me, a secondary school teacher in Ontario, to learn what I need to know in order to conduct my own High School Computer Science Classes in Visual Basic and Visual C#.   I thank you, and urge you to keep up the excellent work.  It has been instrumental in helping me learn and grow as a teacher." - Alan Payne, TA, Blakelock High School, Oakville, ON

"Visual Basic and Databases was well organized and the various projects that I had to create in order to learn the material was exhaustive and intensive (which is good!). The course was fun, entertaining and rewarding." - Ray Torres, Developer, Miami, FL

"The Visual Basic & Databases Tutorial was the best tutorial and samples I found to use Visual Basic". - Lester Torres Rivera, Teacher, Puerto Rico, USA

"I really enjoyed the Visual Basic & Databases tutorial, the database connection examples really helped me." - Bruce Chin, Amateur Developer, Toronto, Ontario

"​As someone who has always struggled trying to use Visual Basic with databases - this book is my savior! I LOVE the fact that it gives COMPLETE code examples for both Access and Sequel Server. I am also trying to learn how to build good databases and am currently using Access 2013 as my tool, so the Access examples are a huge plus for me. I did hit one small snag though. I am saving my Access databases in ".accdb" format. This required 2 small steps to use this file format: Downloading the small Access database engine, and using "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" as the Provider in the connection string. That info is not given in the section on connection strings. However, the c​orrect info is given to use the .mdb file format.   Visual Studio Data Wizard? Never again! The book gives you a quick walk through using the wizard but doesn't use it in the book. You will never learn how to program with databases, strictly relying on the wizard to do the work for you. This is where I went completely wrong - looking for the easy way. Fortunately, the authors explain everything you need to know to do the coding yourself - and everything is explained at a level that is extremely easy to understand.  Queries, reporting, database management, design, distribution, and more - it's ALL there!  So, as a beginner programmer who could never grasp the fundamentals to actually writing the code for database programming, I can honestly say that, for me, this book was worth every penny!"  - Paul

That alone was worth the price of the course." - TS, Bloomington, Illinois.
