I friend and I are trying to work our way through this, and right are having some issues in terms of getting vb.net to connect to an online sql server. We have found lots of resources to connect to local sql servers but nothing about connecting to an online one.
I was wondering if this is possible as we are trying to be build an inventory and pos system for a small company we have, which can be accessed through the vb program from any computer as long as it has an active web connection.
As we are still in the infancy stage, and have explored access, and sql, and think that sql seems to be the way to go as it can have multiple users access it and doesn't have expensive hosting fees.
However we are open to suggestion.
