I am developing a MCQ Based Quiz in VB.Net. I have my questions written in a word document. I am finding a better way to display them in the application randomly for the user to answer them. Methods i have tried are as follows:

1) Create an Access database of these questions and use the database rows to view the questions in the application.

Problem Faced: For simple text it works very fine but we cant insert special characters such as greek letters or mathematical symbols (integral diff etc)

2) Convert all the questions as images and form an algorithm to display them in the application.

Problem Faced: It's too long method to print screen each question and also much hard when it comes to correct any mistake in the data.

Has any body got a better and efficient method to achieve the above task?

What you have tried so for ?

1 solution

Without seeing your schema for the Access database and how you're getting at the data.

Admittedly, Unicode support in Access is a bit lacking. I would suggest using SQL Server Express instead.

Saving the questions as images is just plain stupid.
