First I'm not positive that this is the correct place to post this question.
What I'm attempting to do is setup a web service to view and update a database. The final product I want is a regular vb.net windows form as the client that consumes the web service. The user will be able to view a record in a (for now Microsoft Access) database make changes to it and update the original. I'm very new to the whole web service concept and programming so take it easy on me. So really what I need to know is 1) how do is set up the web service to make a connection to the database (ex. Books.mdb or something like that) and retrieve a record or the entire table. 2) make a connection to the database and update a record or the table. The main issue I need resolve first is how to make the connection to the database. For now the database is located on my developing machine so it'lkl be "localhost" something. Thanks in advance for any and all assistance. If there is any other information you want or need I'll answer to the best of my ability. ~pcjunky
