    You also started with VB.Net, why choosing for C# now?

    You joined this community in 2005 when using VBA or VB6.
    The last months you are also experimenting with VB.Net
    You often struggle with some fairly basic things in both VBA/6 and VB.Net then going to use C#?
    Because of the suggestion of a friend...

    Do you want to build a web application which runs in a browser?

    Start informing yourself first before choosing a new platform.
    I'm still using VB6, but when I would go for web applications I would not use VB6 nor any .NET language.

    Why not? the .Net languages were literally (it's in the name) designed to be used for net-aware applications and websites. C# mvc is amazing.

    Have to agree. Currently using .NET Core, ASP.NET Core, EF Core for web development and it rocks. Various platforms have their own pros and cons and much of the decision comes down to personal preference but the .NET platform has a lot going for it. If you already have .NET experience then it seems to be a no-brainer. If you're not already au fait with .NET then it is still a perfectly viable option. VB support in .NET Core is limited though, and I'm not sure that that is being fully addressed in .NET Core 3.0 either, so you may still have to learn C# to get the most out of it.

    I removed my post just before you replied (or so I thought), it is one for another discussion.

    Re: convert/migrate vb6 project in C#

    One thing that nobody has explicitly mentioned: There is no tool for migrating VB6 to C#, free or otherwise. There was a tool to convert VB6 to VB.NET available up through VS2008, but it was mediocre at best, and few people were ever happy with the result (I'd say that nobody was, except that one person did say they were happy). The languages are just too different going from VB6 to VB.NET. Going from VB.NET to C# is not nearly as hard, and I believe there are converters to do that step, but since you can't get a converter from VB6 to VB.NET, then it doesn't matter whether you can convert from VB.NET to C#.
    My usual boring signature: Nothing
