I'm totally newbie in this age of coding / development & need to start to jump-in in this part of IT & need help that how to start / learn client / server database development either web based or something like this using sql2000 / vs2003.net ( vb ect. ). I know that there r new versions of sql & vs.net but I've just have to manage the versions mentioned above.
Just want to let u know that I've just handed over a half completed employee's attendance system ( database running in sql2000 ) & have asked to develop the reports for the data entered daily by employee's in/out barcode card scanning.
Rather to start develop reporting, I want to understand from roots that how the database ( tables etc. ) created / linked & how / which application I need to use at front end for the reporting in this project.
Any help / idea / guideness / advise in this regard will be highly apprecitaed.
