    Hi.
    Yes, friggin Tod's Tyres again.

    I've completed the Access Database, and the documentation is complete.
    I was going to leave it at that, but I read here that it's important to make the system user friendly.
    Now, I know nothing about programming in VB, but I'd like to give it a go, making all the user menu's for the system.
    I don't know where to start - we were never tought (well, we dabbled in it for a few lessons making pointless programs), so could you guys help me out? What should go on the user menu?, should there be more than one?

    About two weeks.
    I mean using VB for the user interface. So it's linked to Access to update records, and acceess reports etc.

    VB will make it all in one, so the user can access everything from there.
    You mean using forms and subforms as the switchboard?
    It did do forms already.
