      Good Overview of VB Express.  I think it really tells a good story of why it is out there and how it can be used.

      Hi Shamez 

      That was a great video for someone like myself who is very new to
      to visual basic. You explained it well. alot of videos ive watch seem to skip threw it, proberbly because there not for beginners and assume you have a reasonable knowledge of visual basic.
      ive looked but cant seem to find any more of yours ,if there is any could you let me know.

      Many thanks Big Smile

      Great video, Shamez. I learned a few new features. Also, I didn't understand the part where you mentioned that VB Express only connects to the desktop Express version SQL Sever 2005. At work, I'm able to connect to our SQL 2005 enterprise machines in our network operations center. Did I misunderstand? I need to say this for anyone reading this post. The express versions may be geared towards beginners, but trust me, I dont know how MS is giving away so much functionality for free! I'm a full time developer and I use VB Express and Visual Web Developer Express. The differences between the express versions and the full versions are so small, its not funny. And the things that it wont do are available thur 3rd party developers and lots of them are very good open-source addin's. If you are a beginner or weekend warrior, and you grow to a point where its time to move to the full-blown version of Visual studio, you'll see what I'm talking about. They're excellent products. jbrown
