Please could someone point me in the right direction (A tutorial) to learn database programming in VB .NET (I'm an experienced Delphi DB programmer, so I'm not completely new, but VS is sooooooo different.
Mainly I need to INSERT UPDATE SELECT my data (and of course display it in grids and controls) Also something equivalent to DataSuurce.DataChange.

Kind regards
