I am having trouble trying to code a certain program and wondered if you could help. It uses an adress book in the form of a .txt file in the debug folder. The text file contains: a surname and first name, two lines of the adress and post code, a telephone number, date of birth, email adress.
I need to create a program to search this data file by surname to retrive and display the details for a contact. Also by date of birth to retrive and display all contacts with a birthday in a particular month.
I am using Microsoft visual basic 2010 express
Here is the .txt file:
