    about database

    Can we use c languanges as a interface for Ms Access 2000? For example like we using Visual Basic to create interface. If can, how? Actually I really don't know how to use VB, only a little in C.

    Look at ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) 2.0 or Open Database Conectivity (ODBC) or Data Access Objects (DAO) although I think DAO will limit you to access only.

    You would write a dialog box with a set of edit boxes, or list boxes, or dropdown lists, to enter the data, then pass it to one of the above interfaces to your data repository i( in this case access ) to write the data. And also based on some selection bring data back for editing or deleting. You'd problably use crystal report writer for any reports you will generate from your database.

    That's the view from 10,000 feet.
