Connecting databases with VB language

MySQL expert Mike Hillyer explains how to connect MySQL database using MySQL Connector/NET or Connector/ODBC.

What code do I need to use in order to connect a MySQL database in VB language?

This really depends on what version of VB you will be using. If you use VB.NET, you can connect using MySQL Connector/NET,...
