It does teach database programming with VB5.

This book is sloppy, buggy, and a lot of the code doesn't work, but it can be worth the effort, especially, when it's necessary to port an MS Access application to VB5.
The included CD ROM has a lot of useful code which either works or I was able to fix and get working. As an Access developer for many years, I've found it very difficult to come up with good reasons for porting applications to VB . . . but, apparently there are . . . which is why I plowed through this book that I strongly recommend (???) with lots of reservations. The stuff is useful!
Sams should try and figure out how to do "right" by its customers as the book really is a mess. What they've produced here is not much more than a first draft!
My advice is to use a pencil to mark all the mistakes.
