    Classic Visual Basic (VB 6 and earlier) FAQs

    The following is a list of frequently asked questions for VB6 and VB5, etc.


    If you click on one of the questions below, you will be taken to a page that contains at least one possible solution to the problem, and an explanation that you can hopefully understand. If you think something within the FAQ section needs a better explanation, please let me or the thread poster know via our PM (private messaging) system.

    Please note: "Classic VB" is the name commonly used for Visual Basic 6/Visual Basic 5/etc, which is what these FAQs are designed for. If you are looking for help with the 2002 or later (including "Express") versions of VB, please see the relevant forum here.
