Welcome to Teach Yourself Database Programming with Visual Basic 5 in 21 Days, Second
Edition. You cover a lot of ground in the next 21 lessons-from developing fully functional
input screens with fewer than 10 lines of Visual Basic code and writing Visual Basic code
libraries, to handling complex user security and auditing in multiuser applications, to
creating online help files for your Visual Basic programs, and much more. Whether you are
a power user, a business professional, a database guru, or a Visual Basic programmer, you'll
find something in this book to help you improve your Visual Basic and database skills.
Each week you focus on a different aspect of database programming with Visual Basic. In
Week 1, you learn about issues related to building simple database applications using the
extensive collection of data controls available with Visual Basic. In Week 2, you concentrate
on techniques for creating database applications using Visual Basic code. In Week 3, you
study advanced topics such as SQL data definition and manipulation language, and issues for
multiuser applications such as locking schemes, database integrity, and application-level
security. You also learn techniques for creating ODBC-enabled Visual Basic applications.
