  Hi Charles: I am in the process of merging  2 VWD series and the first series 
is unavailable for now. The second series is not posted yet. I will be happy to 
zip up the articles so far and send them to you off-list.
  Send me an e-mail to:
  and I will reply with the files as theyn now stand attached. They have not 
been read nor walked through by anyone else yet so consider them a beta 
version. Comment on them so I can clean them up and make them better for other 
readers if you want to help.
  There is another person I will be sending them to and he will also be walking 
them to do some validation checks and help get them ready to post up someplace.
  I would prefer to keep the number of folks contributing down so I do not get 
a thousand suggestions before publication. So, if you want to walk through them 
and make comments about any problems you encounter or have suggestions on how 
to make the subject matter more clear, I will send the articles to you for 
review. You will have to have Sql Server Express 2008 on your machine and VWD 
2008 as well. Sql server express 2005 will not work since I am using the new 
date column type and that is not a feature in sql server Express 2005.
  Of course, you may be running any sql server 2008 version hhigher than the 
Express version as well so long as it is 2008 or above.

    What type of programming are you planning?

    If you are planning on doing Visual Web Developer programming in vb then 
there is a series being put up on the Blind Geeks website. 

    The series is not for raw beginners but for folks with a little experience 
in and who have a basic understanding of the Sql Server Database. 

    The series is mostely a how to series. The reader is expected to do their 
homework looking up things they might not understand but can get help and 
support on the Blind Geeks e-list.

    The articles will be updated to reflect any enhancements added by readers 
if deemed helpful to other new readers. 

    Help and Support is offered through the Blind Geeks e-list.

    The article series is under way but not posted yet. If there is interest I 
will post the current articles there. The current set of articles includes 
building a site, Building a simple StarTrek Database using VWD, Testing the 
Dtabase using Sql Server Management Studio and building a Webpage to display 
the contents of the Database in a Master / Details page using 2 DropDown lists. 
One for the list of various Star Trek series and the details for the episodes 
for each series.

    It also uses Themes and a CSS StyleSheet. 

    There are more basic articles on building a Website that I may encorporate 
into the StarTrek series including how to set up the VWD IDE so it is more 
screen reader friendly and more basic discussions about the objects used in 
creating a Website. 

    You would need to be good with jaws or WindowEyes and, as mentioned, have a 
basic understanding of how programming works in a language like using 
classes, methods and a little about Database Tables and rows.
