If you know the VB.NET basics, this book teaches everything else you need for developing and deploying database applications with Visual Basic .NET and ADO.NET, the new data access method for the .NET platform. That includes Windows as well as web applications, and both two-tiered and three-tiered applications. Along the way, you'll learn how to use typed and untyped datasets, bound and unbound controls, data views, parameterised queries, and more. You'll also learn how to use XML for defining data structures, Crystal Reports for developing reports, and the Server Explorer for working with a database.
