Practical Database Programming With Visual C#.NET

Databases have become an integral part of our modern daily life. We are an information- driven society. Database technology has a direct impact on our daily lives. Decisions are routinely made by organizations based on the information collected and stored in databases. A record company may decide to market certain CDs in selected regions based on the music preferences of teenagers. Grocery stores display more popular items at eye level and reorders are based on the inventories taken at regular intervals. Other examples include patients ’ records in hospitals, customers ’ account information in banks, book orders by the libraries, club memberships, auto part orders, winter cloth stock by department stores, and many others.
