Hi :)
I'm interested in using a database in my application. But with which program should I create the database file?
In fact I currently don't really know what a database is :wink:

Perhaps you can give me some introduction
Thanks!

What version of Realbasic are you using, one way or the other you'll be using Realbasic to create the database file, you will just have to deside which database engine you are going to use, and the version of Realbasic will help with the discision.

Hi,
I currently use RealBASIC Standard (win),
heard about this SQLite database.
Anyway, seems to be not so easy to use?

A very quick summary: A database is a way to efficiently store and access data. The database consists of tables that have columns to define what type of data is stored in that table. The data is then stored as records in the tables. Its very common to have a tables link to each other so that you can reference related data.

If this sounds like what you need in your application then you can create a database by either using the built in GUI editor (Project->Add->Database->New REAL SQL Database) or by creating it in code. See the language reference for the API to create and define your database in code.

Hope this helps.

But it all has to do with the Version of RB you are using, if you are using RB2005 then SQLite is included if you are using rb 5.5 or older then SQLite will cost you about $150
