    Visual Basic is a language used to write programs.

    A database is a repository where data is stored.

    It's quite likely that a program written in visual Basic will use a database to store it's data.

    Yes you can use VB.NET to code anything apart from an OS system from scratch, you can't go too low level. But yes, but it's not easy to create something like MS SQL Server.

    You could... After all, any database management system (like MS SQL Server) is like any other program in that it had to be written in some language; for SQL Server, it was most likely written in C++ or some other lower-level language. But a VB program could easily be written to handle the data storage instead of using an existing database system. For example, VB creates an XML config file used to store some of the program's settings instead of a full-fledged database.

    Probably not a VB.NET programming question.

    The whole thread is pretty freaky, but that last question deserves a thread all of its own.

    if you prefer using Microsoft Access, you can also use small scripts for controlling your database...
