Connecting Visual Basic to SQL Server

How do I connect Visual Basic to SQL Server? (Visual Basic front end and SQL back end.) I am doing a project in Visual Basic working in networks. Many client systems must access data at one time.

The connection between Visual Basic and SQL Server is made using one of several interface APIs. The APIs you should consider depends on which version of Visual Basic you're using. For Visual Basic.Net, use ADO.Net. For Visual Basic 6 use ADO.
