Basic Database (VB DB)
VB DB allows VB6 developers to
create custom files that can be used instead of Sequential or Random access files. It is single-table,
flat-file storage/retrieval, record-manipulation code.
The code is designed as a template you can easily convert to
save and retrieve data files such as:
- Game data and save games
- Tip/Quote of the Day applets
- Security access files
- Address books
- Sports statistics
- Student grades
- Audio/Video collections
VB DB stores data efficiently and
includes a nice set of record manipulation routines to include repositioning (move
first, move next, etc) searching, sorting, shuffling and of course file
You can also add
encryption capability if necessary. Add an
encryption algorithm then encrypt the fields immediately before saving the
data and decrypt the data when needed.
In addition to these features, you can set up your VB DB
application as a read-only data system (supplies data, but user can not add,
edit or delete data) or as a read/write system.
