Hi,

For my school assignment I am making a to-do list program in visual studio 2015, hence I will need a database to store all the data. I was wondering, for such a program which database will suit best. I was thinking excel, but I am not sure.

Thanks,
Anshul

You could use excel, but why not use file handling of .net? See this article.

Technically any file format, as long as it is structured, qualifies as a database (excel, csv, txt, xml) but i suspect that you will be expected to use an actual database. Since you already have Excel then you likely also have Access so I recommend that.

Actually only the Pro version of Office comes with Access, if I remember correclty.
