I have been programming database applications for almost 12 years starting out with VB3 and using every major version since then. I currently work for a retailer analysis company writing ASP.NET code for our ever evolving web site. I also enjoy helping other programmers with Visual Basic and .NET and am a moderator at vbCity.

Conclusion to Part One

To conclude Part One of this article, we will quickly summarise what we have covered.

Firstly, we have looked at the System.Data object which contains the generic Data components required to store data, such as the DataTable and DataSet objects. We also looked at the System.Data.OleDb object which allows us to communicate with OleDb databases such as Microsoft Access and mySQL etc.

We also took a quick look at the Object Browser tool which allows us to gather information such as Properties and Methods of all objects referenced by our program.

Secondly, we looked at the code required to retrieve data from the Address Book database and to present that data in a DataGrid or a DataGridView.

Admittedly, this part of the article is quite basic and doesn't provide much excitement. We will remedy this in Part Two when we will look at allowing the user to modify, add and delete data from the database. We will also look at methods for searching within the data.
