If you can help me out with understanding this type of coding, I would really appreciate it. I took a couple of classes on C++, but it has been a while. Currently I'm new to Visual Basic. I work in a chemistry lab and I want to make an inventory serach application / database. I don't want to connect it to a server. I just want it to read from the files i have on my computer.
So lets say I wanted to look up an Organic Chemical or Inorganic Chemcial Category. For now lets just call it chemical X. I can either type it in or it will be in a drop down menu. Once I pick chemical X, it would bring up basic information about it. Such as the weight, boiling point, size, where it is stored, cost to purchase and location ect.
