Bonnie asked about learning about databases:

Here's a good place to start: - several good introductory tutorials.

I wouldn't bother much with Access or VB. Although both are decent for a small home app, they don't have the horsepower for a commercial deployment.

If you want to stay with the MS product line, learn MSSQL and VC++. That is what we use to provide our clients the ability to handle thousands of transactions per hour and ~40GB of new data per day in a multiple server network.

Next time you come to Las Vegas, if you are playing in any of the major casinos, our system is taking care of you :)

I worked with Oracle, Java and J2EE on a previous project. They are all good, high demand skills to have, also.

IBM has a lot of tutorials and information about DB2 available, also.
