    I'm sorry but I just couldn't resist.

    You obviously didn't read the faqs or you wouldn't be asking for code. At least give a crack at it. You can obviously surf the net so I'm guessing you can look for the code yourself. If you have problems implementing it or questions about the code then post here.

    If it is a vendor database than you need to learn structured quiery language (SQL).

    If you want to use any type of database you will need to learn SQL. This is the de facto standard in the industry, without knowing the Structured Query Language you won't be able to use a database, unless someone writes the queries for you.

    Every database though, will have its specific API which contains functions to open, close, query, etc. the database. Depending on the database of your choosing you must obtain the API for it in order to create programs compatible with it.

    Hope this helped.
