I need help with this project. I need to write a code using VB.NET that will simply retrieve values from the database and will output the values to the command-line console. Can someone please point me in the right direction?
If you are using Visual Studio than the first thing I would do is try the MSDN (via help menu, Search/index) and look foor DB access. If you use some other IDE, try the help function or the MSDN online (http://msdn.microsoft.com)
If you're using a SQL Server you will need the System.Data.Sql classes, If you're using a local DB (Access) you need the System.Data.OleDB or System.Data.ODBC classes. (enter the full names in the MSDN for more info)
