Managing Your Records: Using Data in Your Program

Most programs use data in one way or another. For example, in an earlier lesson, you entered data in the form of numbers; that data was then used in a calculation with the result returned in a message box.

In very simple programs, data is represented as fields within the program itself. For more complex programs, however, data is stored in a structure separate from the program called a database.

In this set of lessons, you will learn how to create a database and use it to display and update data in your programs.
