Making my own database??
Posted on 1998-06-08
I've been here a week or two ago trying to understand how to save text from edit box entries. I found this to be lacking in security, to be honest, so I decided to create by Diary app as a Database. So, first I'll briefly explain what I'm wanting to do, then I'll ask the question.
I'm working on a Diary application in VC++ 5 Pro. I need to create a database that will take entries from the program's edit box (as entry field) and save it to a database. Now, I have no idea if I can use the tables and MDB's already on my hard drive within the program, but I assume not. I'm betting I have to create my own tables and database to include in this app. So, since I do not have Access or any other Database creation software, I need to know, in detail, how to create the database I need - then I have to include it using AppWizard.
So, please, in detail, help me from start to finish with creating the database that will do the job I need to have a viable, working Daily Diary application. I also have VBasic on my system, as I hear it may be easier to create MDB's for DevStudio usage thru it. Can anyone please assist me?
I know this will be long and hard (I think), so I'm handing over all my points for this one. Thanks!
