n response to 4 questions: a) Yes: VB is the same as VBA when it comes to modules, procedures, variables, loops, branches, operators, and many functions. (b) As the previous. c) There is some similarity between VB forms/controls and Access forms/controls, but they are different in crucial aspects. VB forms lack the basic functionality that is used in the Access: for example: - the shape of the events are different (Dirty, BeforeUpdate); - the controls are different (for example, the Text of the verses, properties, Value); - VB lacks of subforms to the data management related to so easily. VB does not have Access to the reports completely. It also lacks the table of consultation and the design of the interface of Access you have. The construction of a VB 6 application is therefore completely different to the proposition of the creation of an Access application. Since Access gives you data-centric controls, forms, reports, and table and query designers, doing the same job in VB will take much more time. d) Since Access and VB are different beasts, used for different purposes, I don't have links that do exactly what you ask for.
