Hi all, i'm a student. My Final Year Project supervisor want me to develop a software for wholesale industry, and he want the software can update the data from time to time

Example: A company having 2 Branch in B and C place
While B place made a sale! the record will be directly update so C place staff can see the sales of B place. So the sale ID won't be duplicate and their database are link!
i think it need a server right? but how to set up a server and get my software on it??
how to manage the server? or i don't need a server?

Can VB Do that? How it can be done?

Any comment or relevant article or tutorial link are welcome ^^
I would love to study on it.

Thank you all in advanced.

You need to update the data not the application, right ?

You need to use a centralized database and all the branches should access the single instance.

I'm a student who almost graduate。This is my FYP
and my lecturer want us to make it more realistic
. Can you explain more? i would love to learn more

I already have some knowledge about php, apache, and mysql from my internship
is it the same working for vb too?

Yes.

Yes.

You might want to look into Sync Services (Sync Framework) for ADO.NET, which enables applications to be connected to a central database and upload/download/synchronize data from time to time:

An excellent way to start is watching this video:
