visual basic.net to access

Since my standard version of visual basic.net can not connect to MS SQL
(what would i need to enable this). Can any body help me try and think of
how i am going to create this program i want to:

bsaically these "live support" buttons u see on various sites... i want to
create my own, where the chat transcript would be stored in a MSSQL table,
and also things like the operator name, status, login, etc would be stored
in another.

obviously, asp would be used for the webside, but is there any way i could
create a VB client for the operator side? this would allow me to use things
like sound files, and pop ups when people request chats etc.

any thoughts?

thanks.

Dan,

The Standard version will connect to SQL, just not using the designer. In
other words, the application you write can read/write from an SQL Server db,
but you can't use the built in designer to create tables, etc. in SQL
Server. It will let you design in MSDE databases, just not SQL. If you
have MS Access, that is an easy way to build the SQL DB.
