Editing a DBF File RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am new to visual studio 2008 and am trying to create a prgram that will edit a esri shapefile dbf file and have really no idea where to start. I have been searching online for help to get me on the right track but everything I find says to connect to the database and the dbf file isn't in a database really, its just a stand alone file that makes up part of the shapefile. In the end I want to be able to edit the dbf file, the field headings and type of field (ie, string or numeric) and save the changes. Any help would be great!
