Online database

I need source code on setting up an online database using Visual Basic 6.0
I want to be able to scan in inventory to populate database and view my inventory via internet.
Basically see the database or download file from server (website).

The easiest method for this is to rent a VPS ..setup MySql and simply make the connection between VB6 and MySql...afterthat viewing the data over the internet is a breeze even on your smartphone

If your database is in the cloud, it will be available to your legacy VB6 application. An example of a cloud database is SQL Azure: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-ca/services/sql-database/?b=16.50&WT.srch=1&wt.mc_id=AID631143_SEM_0HyN8hS4
