i want to learn more about VB & how i can make a program that will allow me to
make calulation from user inputs,
Cross-ref this information agaisnt a M$ database,
then export a quotation into a pdf, and also export data into M$ Database to create new jobs,
and finally i would like to create a Order acknowledgement from all the information to send to customers & export into Sage.
im hoping there is a magical book that can teach me all these steps
and hoping i can buy it from amazon
and hoping you guys and gals may know the perfect book!
we have been using a system at work at for many years now, which i did create but it is very disjointed,
quotations = made in Excel manual input and searchs
Job = created in Access manual input from quotations
Order acknowledgements = made in sage - another manual repeated job.
overal a job is re-entered 3 to 4 time repeated. when new & 2 times when existing and its a re-order.
Books aren't written to accommodate ones business-requirements. There are a bunch of video's and how-to's on MSDN, that'd might be a useful introduction into the specific topics you request. I'd recommend "Head on C#", but it's not about VB and not about Access.
