200 users but the information needs to be entered by a user into the phonebook. Like a login page for that specific user who enters the data.

The reason I ask about user count is because there are a couple of different ways you can approach this from a data-storage perspective. My thinking was that if you have a small number of users, you could have an XML file that stored the data. If you expect a large number of users (i.e. more people join the company), then you might want to consider using a database backend. There is SQLite that is freely available, or you could move up to a more enterprise-level utility like MySQL or SQL Server (or Oracle, if you can afford it!).

IMO, 200 users isn't that large of a number. Of course, this is your project, so can you envision the path you would take to fit your organization? (From a data storage perspective, I mean.)

One option is to use ASP.NET Membership provider and configure it to store additional details. This way, you wont have to worry about login etc

thank you CodeCruiser and all you other experts for helping me with this. But, I'm more looking for a sample vb project so I can start building it on visual studio web developer. I need to create a phonebook on our local website for users. So, please help me out to find a sample project so I can star from there. The reason I'm asking for this sis that I am a beginner and have no idea in C# but I know a little about about visual basic. So, please help me out if you can.

Thank you all for your time,
Paul

Ok then can you guys tell me how can I convert a project that was written in visual studio 2003.net (VB) to 2010 web developer. I tried the conversion wizard for 2005 and 2008 but it does not work. If I can do that then I will not need a sample project because that would be my starting point!

Opening a project from 2003 in 2005/2008 should convert it automatically. I suspect you are using other DLLs that are for the older .NET version.
