.NET works well with SQL server. You can get SQL Express for free and put it on your computer and then write programs against it. If you know VBA the next step would be to download visual studio express also for free, and start writing VB.NET programs against the SQL Server database. Then you pick a User interface. There are a number of good ones. The easiest for simple programs is WinForms, but that is not as well liked in the market place anymore. So you should also write programs using either WPF, ASP.NET, or ASP MVC 5, or one of the other popular frameworks depending on the direction you would like to take your career.
