I've never wrote programming and what I've seen would be called very limited.  Where would be a good place to start (ie: books or cd's)?  Would there be a dictionary of sorts?  Is it possible to understand programming language and is it universal?  Gotta start somewhere and looking for guidance.  I have Icc-win32 don't know how to use it but have it.  Also Access 2000.

I don't like to say it, but I would suggest to start with MS Visual Basic. It is the cheapest and the quickest to learn little bit about programming. The language is used by the most of Microsoft products (starting with Word macros and finishing Internet - ASP). At the end, it would be good to learn some "real" language like C++ or something like that ...

I would recommend to start with Pascal. That language was designed for teaching programming. There should be enough books about Pascal available.

You can download Borland's Turbo Pascal 5.5 from:

  http://community.borland.com/

Then go to the 'museum'. You'll have to register, but it's free (as in beer).

Turbo Pascal is an old DOS programming environment including Editor and on-line help -- i.e. it's text mode, but you that's just fine for the start.
