I have been given sample VB code. I have the .frm, .vbp, vbw etc files
But I don't have a copy of VB6!
I want to view the VB code and use it in an Access database.

How can I view the code without VB installed?

Many thanks

TimTDP,

Have you tried opening the files with Notepad?

Hope this helps,

Dennis

Notepad does "open" the files, but does not make a lot of sense. Command buttons have the name "Command1" etc, so I don't know which is wish and cannot follow the logic.
I think I need an opensource version of VB

Use NotePad++ and select VB from the language drop down. NotePad++ is free and great for programming in a ton of languages.

Tim,

Since you're not working with Visual Basic, you're going to have to do more of the legwork, I'm afraid. The .FRM file will have the details about that command button's details, like it's .Top and .Left and caption.

Hope this helps,

Dennis
