Learning VB.net project

Posted 28 March 2015 - 03:05 AM

Hi, I have been teaching myself VB.net and decided to make a program to sort products to give me the product that matches criteria selected by the user.

the criteria is displayed in list boxes.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/o5ndg3dlz67j6rl/Customer%20Care%20Plan.pptx?dl=0

and the data will be in a excel or .csv file which will be loaded each time the program is run. The file will increase in size as more products are added.

Can anyone give me some ideas as to how I should achieve this.

many thanks

Priders

How much progress have you made with VB.NET?
What code do you have already?

I have managed a couple of simple projects to rename and move pdf files and one to make a simple scan documents.

The first project I ever made was a simple score program for archery competitions which would read and write to a text file.

I would say I'm a little more advanced than a total novice and understand the fundamentals of the tools and using modules, multiple forms, variables and arrays at a very basic level.

I'm not sure what sort of response you are looking for, it's your project after all.

If you want to automate Excel then this is a very good sequence of tutorials:

VB.NET and Excel

You may also be able to treat the Excel file as a data source, using the OleDbClient to read the data.

If working with csv then there is plenty of information to be found about reading such a file.

It is more typical to use a DataGridView for this, keeping listboxes in-sync will take some work.
