I'm a beginner with VB6. I don't know very much, but have been attempting to build a program whereas on the completion of the loading of a certain web page within the browser embedded on the form, the program connects to a passworded MYSQL database which i have already created on my webhost server, and adds one credit to the value for the current user.
I have a problem, however, within the connection of VB to the MYSQL.
I havent got a clue how to do it, or even where to start. i've been onto the ODBC reference manual on mysql.com, but i need something in plain English, and something i can basically copy and paste into my code (i can take the time to study it later, but am on a tight schedule)
Any help, tutorials, diagrams, or copy and paste code i could use would be great.
The server is db1.valuehost.co.uk and the database is genesis3_tox1
so basically, if anyone could incorporate that (and point out where to put my user and pass because i'm not posting such info on a public board) into a copy/paste code, i would be eternally grateful.
