Here’s the full source code of the sample project, Visual Basic .NET 2008 Tutorial, I created this in addition with the tutorial that I've made several months ago.

It is advised that you will follow the tutorial closely to understand how I created this project.

There’s nothing so much information about this project for certainly, this project is not intended for advance programmer, thus it is being created for beginners, to show the method on how to program with Visual Basic .NET 2008 and using SQL Server as the database.

This tutorial will continue until the sample library system project is complete.

Here’s the to do list:

Borrowed Books
Returned Books
Sample reports like Borrowed Books, Returned Books, Fine, Members Report, and a lot more.

You need to change the connection string of this project to use your own SQL Server instance name and computer name. For more info please visit:

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 10.00 # Visual Studio 200' at line 1

So... isnt the idea of borrowing and returning, to have it taken out of one when it's updated in the other dataset? I mean, you have a grid that shows borrowed books, and shouldnt returning them pull them out of that so they dont still show as borrowed???

Anybody can toss up a couple of grids that enter data.
