Visual basic allows us to manage databases created with different database programs such as MS Access, Dbase, Paradox and etc. In this lesson, we are not dealing with how to create database files but we will see how we can access database files in the VB environment. In the following example, we will create a simple database application which enable one to browse customers' names. To create this application, insert the data control into the new form. Place the data control somewhere at the bottom of the form. Name the data control as data_navigator. To be able to use the data control, we need to connect it to any database. We can create a database file using any database application but I suggest we use the database files that come with VB6. Let select NWIND.MDB as our database file.
