I'm dangerously unqualified for the job I just accepted. The good news is the manager that hired me knew that so expectations aren't too high.

I'm trying to figure out how to use vb.net to connect to a DB2 database and to a SQL database. I've tried googling to see what I can find but I think I'm missing some very basic steps to make the scripts work.

Suggestions?

I'm just a googler like you when it comes to these things but this page might help: http://www.tutorialspoint.com/vb.net/vb.net_database_access.htm.

On the rare occasions I have to code (I avoid it whenever possible) I will find an online tutorial and just run through from the beginning until I find what I need.

Good luck!

Congrats on the new job, Bushma! Yes, I've had one of those "dirty job but somebody's gotta do it" kinds of employments before. When I was computer drafting for a big local telecommunications company years ago, I was tasked with updating all of their hand-drawn sketches and as-built plans from hard copy (paper) to electronic (CAD) form, as they were expanding their fiber-optic network all across Alaska for high-speed Internet in every home, urban and rural, as their goal. When I asked why many of the plans were incomplete, where do the actual physical cable systems go between Point A and Point B, the answer I got was "well, that's why you were hired. To figure that out for us."  Lookingup

So yes, it helps when you are appreciated, even when the task really sucks. This is why I try to say 'hello' to the angels on our shoulders that we hardly ever notice, like the phone line repairman, or the sewage treatment guy, or even the guy flipping burgers and taking your order at McDonald's, etc.  TeddyR

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
