    How do I create a database?

    I have been reading all about filling controls with information from the database but I can't find anything that really covers the simple question.

    I want to create a database with 4 different table names. Each table will be holding information from information the end user submits on my form.

    All I need in the database is tablenames so I can have the corresponding datatable control column on my form display data that is populated through my application.

    I know how to fill the datatable with a dataadapter, I just don't know how to create the database with proper headings to get me started.

    I just answered this question in your other thread. It's best to avoid asking the same question in more than one place.

    Because it helps to keep the forum tidier. Why ask 10 duplicate questions when 1 properly thought out question, with all of the relevant information needed to answer your question well?
    Any other new members or beginners searching the forum for a similar topic won’t have to trawl through loads of unnecessary threads...

    Then stop being arrogant. It's against the rules of this site to ask the same question in multiple threads because it's a great way to waste the time of people who are volunteering their time to help you. Why should we spend our time providing help in one thread that has already been provided in another thread on the same subject? If you really are here to learn then maybe you should consider taking the advice of someone who has been here for 16 years and knows how this site works instead of playing the victim and pretending that criticism of your doing the wrong thing is anything other than an attempt to prevent you from doing the same wrong thing in the future. There's no good reason to ask the same question multiple times and it can have negative consequences so don't do it. That's really all that should be required.

    The problem with asking the same quesiton in multiple places is that you'll get multiple answers with only half the info. So someone responds in the other thread, requiring you to give up more info... well, now that's not here, so then someone responds here, not knowing that other info... it causes a fragmentation of information and answers and leads to problems down the road when you then try to pull it all together. It's a waste of our time, and a waste of your time. Best thing to do is pick the best spot to ask the question, and ask it once. Then you get the best shot of getting all the answers by the right people all in one spot.

    Is there a reason to post such a comment on a 9 years old thread? do you have any grievance against jmcilhinney ? who, by the way, try to help you in another thread...

    I didn't even notice the age of the thread, or the name of the poster for that matter. I just assumed that it was the OP replying to a recent thread. It never occurred to me that anyone would be petty enough to do otherwise.
