Need some advice on how you would tackle a programming idea. First off, I want to make a program to track a patient base and track patient history, pictures, etc. I kind of have an idea of what I want it to do, but im not sure how Im going to store all these customers and their information. My first idea would be to use a MS Access database and have the program (vbnet or C#) open a connection to it. My second idea would be to use XML and track all this customer information. Other than that, what else would I be able to use? How do programs like quicken and what not track all their information? I suppose a database, but its not like SQL or Access is it? Anyways, if you have any suggestions and are familiar with VBNet or C#, please speak your mind. Thanks.
