Hi guys,

I just wondered if anyone can point me in the right direction. I am using visual studio express 2012 for desktop and want to create a program that can create read and write an sql database.

I don't know exactly where i should start as the information out there is so overwhelming. would anyone be able to point me to a good resource or tutorial/example?

You need to figure out which database you want to use. SQL Server would be a good fit and integrates well in VS. Then how to want to connect and store the data DataSet or Entity Framework? Once you decide then you can narrow down the search and tutorials.

I am trying to basically build a database program, in many ways it will be similar to excel. It will need to handle lots of data (in the form of chemical analyses). With SQL server and entity framework, will it be possible to create a standalone database program? would the users need to install any additional things such as sqlserver or is that handled by the program instelf? sorry if it is a stupid question.
