    Azure Cosmos DB and vb6?

    Hi Guys,
    I have vb6 destop app, im need to put some data on the cloud like XML DOC, (im thinking in Azure Cosmos DB (free) to read from a phone app not created yet)
    I couldnt find any sample code conecting to that database from vb6 not even conectionstrings not sure how to start(im complete lost to be honest).
    I have no experience with C# yet. Since i diddnt started im open to your advice
    Upload DAta with vb6 if its possible OR is better to start from scratch with vs2019 to ulpload the data from SQL database to the cloud?
    Thnx for your advice

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/cosmos-db/ is probably your best starting point, you would need to access CosmosDB using the REST API as there isn't a VB6 SDK for it. Also CosmosDB stores data natively as JSON, not XML - depending on how much and the type of data other options may be better.

    With Microsoft turning away from the native technologies in Windows you have an opportunity. You can just as easily use one of Amazon's cloud DB solutions and work with the market leader.

    It's still a bit of hand work. VB6 doesn't get a lot of love when it comes to API bindings these days.
