Newbie data recall question Posted on 2/1/2004 at 01:02:01 AM by bricorbin
I am very new to VB and programming in general so please go easy on me if this is a dumb question
I have battled my way thru a user interface and made my very first program work! (yay for me) It was tough at times but looking at other peoples code and this group helped a lot.
The thing works OK but now I relalse that I want the program to remember some of the stuff the user is typing in. The info comes via text and combo boxs. Some of these items allow the user to add thier own string in the combo/text box which needs to be there next time they run the program. there will be 5 users running the program on a network so wherever the info is stored it will need to be read & written by multiple people.
Is there some internal place that will remember these in VB? should I look at putting the strings into a text file or a database?
What is going to be easiest for a real begineer?
Some pointers on where to look for an example would be great.
I already have my own setup form in the program so I could add a text box and browse button to set the location on the network to a text/database file?
