OK, I'm hitting the wall harder than a rookie Indy driver!
I'm very new to programming in general, C# in particular, and I'm trying to teach myself. I'm using C# Express, which Microsoft claims is aimed squarely at people like me (novice). However, I can't seem to find the exact information I need on how to manipulate data in an external database from within the program I'm writing. The documentation seems to assume that I am more familiar with the concepts and the terminology than I am.
As basic as this might be for those of you with more experience, I can't grasp, from the documentation, the relationship between a dataset and a data adapter, for example. I don't know what code to type that will make the program use the database it's connected to (I did get it to connect to the database), for example to create/edit/store records. As a training project, I'm just trying to write a simple contact management program with 5 fields that stores data in an Access database.
I'd appreciate some insight, or at least some direction on where I can get a good grounding in this concept :confused:
