I am working on a project that entails one beast of a database. A friend asked me to write a program into which he could catalog all of his cards by sport and then further by player, team, manufacturer, etc.
The tools I will be using:
1) MS Access - For the database backend
2) VB.NET - For the GUI
I know MS Access will do the job as far as the database goes, but since my friend lives 6 states away, can I package the Access database inside the VB.NET deployment project? So, when he installs the program on his computer, the connection to the database is made automatically.
I have used VB.NET off-and-on for approximately a year, but have never had to build a database for use with the application.
If you have any suggestions, I would be really appreciative.
