NYSC to place corps members on civil service salary scale

ABUJA— The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, is working with the National Salaries and Wages Commission, NSWC, to place corps members on a public service salary scale. The Director-General of NYSC, Brig. Gen. Johnson Olawumi, who disclosed this in Abuja, noted that the move would stop frequent agitation for a review of corps members’ allowances.

Before we delve into the data-driven world of ADO.NET, let's first take a look at some tools available in the Visual Studio products. The following example shows you one way of connecting to a database without writing any code.
Creating a Connection to a Database Open Visual C# Express and create a new Windows Forms Application. Name the project as DatabaseConnection. In Visual Studio, the Database Explorer is called Server Explorer. It is opened by default in Visual C# Express located in the left as a tab.

If you can't find the Database Explorer, go to View > Other Windows > Database Explorer to open it up. Click the Connect to Database icon in the Database/Server Explorer.

Clicking it shows up the Add Connection Window.
