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.
I am a VB.Net programmmer. I use the SQL Server and as backend but when I deploy my application to another computer, It is required the SQL Server must be installed on another computer. Please suggest how to work with SQL database (.mdf,.ldf) without installing SQL Server on another computer becuase I cannot go everywhere for each computer to install the application If user of my application is just simple user. If there is another solution, please let me know. I will be very thankful to him/her.
