At the stage you are at, you need to focus on develop the data model (database design) for your application, the programming will come later.

Think about what data you want to store and a relational data model that could be used to represent that data.

OK i get the store data part.i am gonna focus on d customer service side of the bank. customers accounts - business n non-business folks, special business accounts offers n stuff. but what is the relational data model? cant i just make a database n connect it to vb6 n do all the programming on vb6?my prob is that i just dont know what to do in the database. not familiar with banking systems AT ALL.

This is not really a database design discussion group,

Yes you can do all the interface in VB and there are tons of examples of connecting VB to databases on the site.

wrt the data model, have a go yourself first. You need to think about what data you will need to store, ie what information about a customer, what information about a bank account and what information about a transaction. Then think about how they will link together (ie the relationships between these three entities)

Once you have that, go into MSAccess and try creating some tables to hold this data.

i have no probs with that. i want to know what a vb6 banking system looks like.

we can't help with more details, can you publish your datamodel

Nice said Chris. This would have gone on until you ended up designing AND writing the entire project.
