    My boss is fighting it, but its coming to a point where I need SQL & possibly VB training... Can anybody recommend good centers for classes in the CT area? I need standard SQL Training, and SQL Reporting training...

    And possibly some VB training... But thats not as important.

    nobody is teaching vb anymore... i doubt you'd find classes on it.
    SQL, same deal... its really hard to find a class on JUST SQL.

    i guess a good place to start is w3schools.com
    and join on sitepoint.com and read and post y0. im briansol there

    He means it's usually integrated in with another language, so instead of learning the SQL structure, you just learn how to make certain things happen in SQL with XXXX language.

    Are you trying to learn VB site-wise or program wise?

    Right,

    SQL is VERY DBMS specific. While the majorty of syntax is the same, there are a ton of quirks on every system.

    porting a query in mysql from oracle or mssql probably won't work. And there's 3423 other DBMS's out there....

    no clue.

    the easiest way to learn SQL is to go to barnes and noble and buy a book, install it on a machine, and learn.

    you can download SQL Express 5.0 from microsoft for free. just use the MMC snap-in and go nuts.
