Re: Programming

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Many years ago I took a course to learn Visual Basic. I found it to be very difficult to program and gave up on it. Maybe it is easier now but I did not want to try it again. Also one of the other listers said that MS is going to drop VB in approx 3 years so I am reluctant to try VB. My son who is a lot smarter than his old man is going to investigate some of the options for me. We will look into your suggestions.

Would it be that difficult to convert your code to Visual Basic, which is

Scroll down to "Express 2013 for Windows Desktop" to get the version you
want. If I understand correctly, this is the IDE (Integrated Development
Environment) and includes a VB compiler.

There's a bit to learn, but if you're game you can at least convert your QB code, and let someone else do the WYSIWIG.
