I am trying to help posters on the MSDN us Forums especially about SQL Server ( i am moderator for 4 forums including the SMO/DMO Forum )
My first program, i wrote it in Basic in 1967 a long time ago.
I have developped in COBOL,C,Pascal, even in Algol,APL and PL1 , applications for banks,insurance companies during 25 years, but my specialities were system programs and databases maintenance ( Image , Oracle and SQL Server )
My prefered language is VC#, but i accept to write in VB.
