Hi, could anyone help me....

My problem is... how to use this VB project on a LAN network. If I complete the project using the database which is on my hard drive, how Could I build this project and put it on the network, so as other users using the project to update the database.

You specify where the database is located in your ConnectionString.

The connection string contains information about how to connect to your database. All you have to do is have the database accessible on the network (firewalls allowing your application to connect to it) and ensure that your connection string is correct.
