Hello, I am new here. I would like to ask opinion from you guys on what are the best options available for me to develop a database system using Visual basic? I am using Visual Basic Express Edition.
My problem: I am currently developing a toolkit that needs the user to insert information and put it into a database system. After that, I need to extract and analyse the data and present it in graphical form (pareto, histogram, and pie chart) also in VB.
I am not familiar with VB, and based from what I've studied and from my research, there are few options. So, my questions are,
a) Is it possible for me to use VB stand alone as the database and perform all the required actions needed using it?
b) is it better to use Excel and link it to my VB program?
c) use Microsoft Access instead, and link it to my VB program?
Please help me on this matter. Thank you in advance.
