Default Sudoku 4X4 Puzzle


I am trying to do a Sudoku 4X4 Puzzle for my Visual Basic class and I am pretty new to all this coding. The application will need to have two buttons, one being "Check" the other Bring "Generate". For the check button I need to write the code behind the the button to check the puzzle to see if ti is a complete (legitimate puzzle). To be a legitimate puzzle the user must enter the values 1,2,3,4 into the each row and column. The puzzle are also divided int 4 quadrants. Each of these quadrants must include each of the numbers 1 through 4 as well. Once the user enters the proposed puzzle and clicks check then the user should be shown if it is a legitimate puzzle or not. If it is then the solution will be inserted into a solutions table (Sudoku4X4.mdb) database. This table will contain one and only one correct solution at a time, so if the solution is legitimate then the numbers in the table would be deleted.Any and all help will be greatly appreciated cause I am a newbie at this all!!

I think this project sounds a bit advanced for a complete newbie. It's an assignment I'd expect someone with 3-6 months of experience to be able to handle with some help, but I wouldn't expect anyone to complete this as their first program. If you were able to choose your own project, pick something easier. Programming projects almost always end up more complicated than you expected. When I had a choice of assignment I usually picked the one that I thought I knew the most about. Each time it took twice as long as I expected. Reach for something that's at the edge of your knowledge, not completely outside.

I'm not going to say we won't help you at all. But right now all you've done is describe the program and ask for "any help". You get the best help with your homework if you appear to have genuinely tried. This is the process I like to see a person follow:
  • Think about the next feature.
  • Design a solution you think will work.
  • Try it.
Sometimes things don't work out the way you planned; I don't get things right the first time and I've been at it for 8 years. When your attempt doesn't work, compile these facts:
  • What you expect.
  • What happens instead.
  • Why you think your code should work.
Usually when I gather that information I realize that what I'm getting makes perfect sense because when I get to "Why should this code work?" my answer is "It shouldn't."

If you follow this process and include the three bits of information from the 2nd list, you're very likely to get a good amount of help. Focus on one feature at a time; if you ask for several bits of help at once the topic tends to get muddled.

Agree if you are accessing data in an .mdb you will need to learn about Table Adaptors, Data Sets, Connection Strings etc on top of everything else. This is way too ambitious for a complete newbie.
