Saving a Form - Database?
Here is my situation. I created a program on VB6.0 to track student's grades in high school. In doing this, I used over 90 combo boxes, 50+ labels, along with textboxes, etc.
I wanted to be able to choose the classes, etc for each student and save the form with my choices to the hard drive so I could pull it back up later and make changes.
I did not use a database to begin with because I did not know how. Still don't. However people have been telling me that I need a DB in order to save. I am going to make this program into an EXE when done.
Can I save the form and data as is without a DB, or do I need one?
Is there a way to create a new DB to handle the current objects and code from the program or do I have to start over?
Is VisData worth using? It just confuses me to even look at.
Any and all help appreciated!
