We have now finished converting our existing project to use a Microsoft SQL Server database. I think you will agree that the difference between the Microsoft Access version and the new version is not that great, especially when you consider that we could have omitted the use of Stored Procedures and continued to use the inline SQL statements. However, the benefit of using Stored Procedures certainly makes this exercise worthwhile; it especially comes in handy when you need to modify some of your queries as you do not need to modify your code, only the Stored Procedures which saves you from having to recompile your programs.
So we are now at the end of this series of articles. I certainly hope that it has given you enough information to start working with databases in your programs and to explore other areas and techniques of ADO.NET that will aid you in your database work.
