@RickZeeland I'd like to thank you very much for that first reference.Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:

There are always gems in here (I knew about Alt-F4 but not Ctrl-F4)

I've been programming in FoxPro and then Visual FoxPro (the older ones may dimly remember those) as a serious hobby that ran my business for nearly 15 years, and beyond since 1985 and I'm 77 now. I tried to learn C# in 2012 but after 26 online courses (in about 5 days) it only got as far as "Hello World", and nowhere (I wasn't "here" then) could I find out the important bit - how to manipulate and store data in a database. FoxPro is 32 bit and not cloud compliant AFAIAA.

I have started to read one of the links' recommended (and FREE!!) books and it promises to reveal what I need to do to achieve aforesaid data manipulation. Hopefully, in the end I might produce a cloud based, which is the future.

Thanks again, onward and upward, Visual Studio 2019 here I come again. Big Grin | :-D

Straw Poll

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
