I need to write an exe program in VB 2010 Express. I want to use Access to build data tables to export the info entered into Word documents. I do not want Access or Word visible to user. VB will use drop down menus (combo box) for table selection from Access and import that data into the Word documents. I would think this is possible in VB but is it in the Express version? What books should I start reading? Should I start with VB Express or Access (I think the "Bible" is the best one out there but not sure and need advise on that). If you could recommend books or good links to get me on my way that would be awesome. Thanks so much!!
