Connect VB6 to MySQL and make a search form

Posted 21 November 2012 - 06:36 AM

Good Day! I'm a beginner with VB6 and know my way around SQL Databases and queries.
What I would like to know is how to connect VB6 to and SQL Database in Wamp or in SQL Plus.

I'm need to make a simple form that requires you to input products (Product ID, Name, Category, Stocks available) and save them in a SQL database table. There are also buttons to Edit or Delete current products.

Another button is a search button that opens a new form with a search bar and a list below it to display the search criteria from the database.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

We have an on-going thread about whether or not VB6 is dead. So I'm inviting you to join it just because I'm curious why someone today starts to learn this. Why does a new coder learn VB6 when VB.NET or C# are available?

Please read: Is learning VB6 now a complete waste of time? (Yes)

Ok - so you're aiming at customer need, so that makes sense.
Where are you that there are people looking to have new programs made in VB6?
