I'm new to Visual Basic 6. I'm trying to create a program that needs to read and write many files. One of which is the options (.ini) file. How can I read and write certain lines and settings in that file?
Ex. Line 22 of a .ini file:
Close to System Tray: True
Also, I have another file which will store information much like a database. The format would be [Customer #],[Customer Name],[Customer Location] with a separator between records.
,[John Doe],[New York]|||,[Don Joe],[California]
There would need to be many many lines of these, so how can I read all these for presentation in a table like format? I'm trying to create an Access 2002 like database except using Visual Basic to show forms, tables, and queries while also having the ability to run it in the system tray, give alerts at certain times, access other files, etc.
Thanks in advance.
PS: I'm very very new to VB, so please keep it simple(if possible) =) If not I'll be able to figure it out.
