i need help for a school project. the project must be done in vb and basically it is a database management system. guaranteed very simple for an experienced programmer. if possible, i only need to be instructed and i will make the program on my own, with the programmers aid. basically there's this excel file with column names and i was thinking it would be better to convert it to mysql for portability. and this mysql server will be sitting on an msxp or linux or bsd server, where LAN clients will be able to access it. basically its a client/server program, database manipulation, with visual basic 6 as frontend and mysql as backend. it should also be capable of generating msword templates based on the database content i'll just explain more of this to the coder i will be choosing.
