Visual Basic 6

Q: Visual Basic 6

This is probably a really simple question, but I'm just starting out with VB.. What I want to know is how to launch an external program from within my program, for example when I click a button launch say explorer?

Preferred Solution: Visual Basic 6

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Visual Basic 6

To start Calculator in Windows 95 via VB code:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Shell "C:\Windows\Explorer.exe", vbNormalFocus
End Sub

That will start explorer when you click the button. You can change the second argument (vbNormalFocus) if you want it maximized or minimized or whatever. Also, of course, you need to make sure the path is correct.

I guess my question can be asked in two ways, the short way and the long way.

Here's the short one:

Can you do everything that you can do with VBA with VB?
The long one is:

I need to be able to write programs that conceivably invovle web forms/web services (VB right?), Microsoft SQL Server 2002 (VB again right?) but also Microsft Office applications like Excel and Access (VBA??). Does that mean I need to learn both Visual Basic and Visual Basic for Applications? In my initial research into Visual Basic I've learned that Visual Basic for Applications is a subset of Visual Basic, so shouldn't that mean that Visual Basic, being the parent and more powerful than Visual Basic for Applications, is capable of performing all of the functions that Visual Basic for Applications does?

Thanks for your help,
([email protected])

A:Solved: Visual Basic vs. Visual Basic for Applications

I do not know VB at all, only some VBA. The main difference is that VBA has words specifically for the applications, a classic exanple would be the
both range and .End(xlUp) are for use in Excel.

Hello everyone. Right now im doing a proyect in Visual FoxPro v. 6.5 where i am using a control names MAPX.OCX, this is used to display maps and its cordinates. I have already started to use this control, but im a bit stuck. I read in the manual of the control, but it is made for Visual Basic and C++ and I have very little experience using Visual FoxPro.

The instructions of the VB as the following:

Private sub Globessymbol_click()
Dim top20cities as mapxlib.layer
set top20cities = map1.layers("ciudades")
top20cities.style.symbolbitmapname = "x.bmp"
end sub

The Map1 is the name of an OLE object that identifies the MAPX.OCX and this also has some layers to put the name, icons, lines, etc. This layers are the ones i am having trouble codificating it in Visual FoxPro.

does someone here have any knowledge of how to do this? i'll thank very much the help.

Hi there
I'm just messing around a bit with Visual Basic - I just want to use EXCEL (mainly) and a couple of really simple Windows stuff. I can't be bothered with C# or .NET -- I'm not (nor intend to be) a professional programmer -- but would like to have a go with some small applications and get to grips with the Basic in EXCEL.

I've got the old Ms Visual Basic 6 disks -- is it worth while messing about with these on W8 (Ms believe it or not is going to support the platform through W8 releases !!!) or should I just bite the bullet and download Visual Studio express which seems a bit overkill also for what I'm really trying to do.

As I'm running a 32 bit version of Office it would seem that most of the VB6 stuff could run quite simply in EXCEL 2010 (32 bit) even though my OS is x-64 --or I could even run it in an XP VM.

Any suggestions as to which is the better way to go -- I just want this for casual use -- not as a professional.


A:Visual Basic 6 or Visual Studio for EXCEL use

Doesn't Office 2010 still support VBA (Visual Basic for Applications)? I think that is what you mean by Basic in Excel?

As far as supporting VB6 in Win 8, VB6 apps do run in Windows (32 bit), though we've had issues at work with some 3rd party components. I'm pretty sure 64 bit is out for VB6! I couldn't get any VB6 executables to run on my Windows 7-64 box, though they will run just fine in an XP VM.

I think your options are VBA in Excel if you want to stick with classic VB...

Hi everyone,

I've been trying to get my feet wet in creating a .vbs file from notepad to do a basic function. I wanted to be able to run .reg files remotely but also interactively. This led me down the path of simply finding an example of a .vbs that would open anything remotely at all. Notepad is what came up with the most results and the Win32_ScheduledJob object appeared to be what was needed.

I researched many different places but this is a decent walkthrough. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa394601(v=vs.85).aspx

I grabbed the code below out of the website and changed the date parameters to run in a couple minutes from my current time. I could see the task in scheduled tasks but when the time had come and gone nothing would happen and this is just trying to get it to run locally so far.

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
& strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
JobID = "Test"
Set objNewJob = objWMIService.Get("Win32_ScheduledJob")
errJobCreate = objNewJob.Create _
("Notepad.exe", "********143000.000000-420", _
True , 1 OR 4 OR 16, ,True, JobId)
If errJobCreate = 0 Then
WScript.Echo "Job created successfully: " & VBNewLine _

I just installed Visual Basic C++ 2010 Express and I was wondering if I could uninstall older versions. It's about the following applications:
Microsoft C++ 2005 Redistributable
Microsoft C++ 2008 Redistributable x86 9.0.30729.4148
Both have one security update as well. So is it safe to remove them or will this cause problems?

A:Visual Basic C++

Try the uninstall and see.

Create system restore point first -
START | type create | "create a restore point"

Uninstall the older C++ versions. If problems occur, restore the system using the restore point created -
START | type rstrui

Any help would be greatly apprciated, as well as thoughts or ideas.

I would like the user running the report to be able to select the date ranges for as many ranges as they want up to 6 different ranges. So the would get a form prompt that would ask them to enter the date ranges and then the report would run.

Hi everyone,

I have a relatively simple question. I have a ms access database app written in vb6. I have a function in the app that allows the user to edit a record. The way i'm currently working this is by using the adodata.recordset.addnew method which writes an new record to the database and then i'm going through using SQL and deleting the old record. I was wondering if there is, and i'm sure there is, a way to bring up a record and edit it and save it as opposed to writing a whole new record and deleting the old one.

Thanks to all who read!

A:visual basic 6.0 ADO


As you are using ADO then you have the ability to Update a record:

With ADOData.Recordset
.Fields("MyField1").Value = "My New Value"
.Fields("MyField2").Value = 400
End With

This updates the current record with the new field values. Now this appears very simple (and it can be) however you do generally need to consider a few things. Firstly you need to ensure that the recordset (table) that you are updating has a primary key. If you don't then you will either get spurious results or you will get an error message that may say something like "insufficient base information for updating".

I would strongly recommend that you avoid using the ADO Data control and create your recordset(s) in code as this gives you much more flexibility in terms of setting the cursortype/locktype of the recordset which governs whether it is updatable etc.

Another method that you can employ is to use a standard SQL statement to perform the update (though here again a primary key is strongly recommended to avoid odd results) and do something like this:

ADOData.ActiveConnection.Execute "Update MyTable Set MyField1 = 'My New Value', MyField2 = 400 Where MyKeyField = 123456"

I am looking for help with a macro. Here's the basics (what I want it to do):

-The macro only works out of one workbook, with 3 worksheets, WIP_Watch Old, WIP_Watch New, and Stocked. Column headings for these worksheets include order number, part number, quantity, description, etc... but I'm only concerned with order number

-I want the macro to find and compare order numbers from WIP_Watch Old to WIP_Watch New. When a match is found, nothing needs to happen but when an order from WIP_Watch Old is NOT found on WIP_Watch New, then I want to copy the row containing the order number (columns A through W) from WIP_Watch Old.

-Next, I want to go to the worksheet called Stocked and insert a row at the top (under the column headings, so row 2), and paste the information copied from WIP_Watch Old. I then want to go to column W of this row and insert the date the copy is made.

-I need the above process to loop through the entire list of order numbers.

I have a macro started, but I've gotten stuck. Anyone think they can offer some help? The macro (called ToStock) is below.


Sub ToStock()

Dim Order As String 'Order Number
Dim OrderCol As Integer 'PO Column Number
Dim PrevRow As Integer 'Row number of the previous file

Greetings all,

I am constructing a macro that will allow me to have my summary sheet open, hit a button to browse for a .xls file then import the values from it and add them to any existing values. File location and the amount of files are a variable so adding the one at a time is fine.

So far I have been able to get Excel to open the browse window, allow me to select the desired file and import the values from the specified cells but I’m having trouble with getting it to place the values into the same cell co-ordinates and add them to any existing values that may be present.

My coding experience in Visual Basic is limited to what I have learnt in the past few days trying to get this working. What I have constructed up until now has been done so primarily through salvaging bits of code from other macros modifying them and basically putting them together through trial and error, so it’s entirely possible I have made simple mistakes.

I'm trying to run an SQL INSERT INTO statement in a macro in Microsoft Access. This is the general line I'm trying to run:


INSERT INTO [2004Q27] (TrainingID, Count) SELECT 1, Sum(IIf([Q27_1]=1,1,0)) FROM 2004Data

It basically tallies up the count in the Q27_1 field. Note that this is just one instance of this line. I'm running it in nested For loop to run it for every year and for questions Q27_1, Q27_2...Q27_i. This is the actual code, with the variables for the year and the Q27_<counter>.

FWIW, if you're serious about learning more about programming, VB is probably not the language to start with. Basic allows too many sloppy programming practices. I'd consider just starting with C++, it's the major language of most larger applications are programmed in nowadays.

Can anyone help me correct this code?? I have to figure out what it does and design the GUI in the form.

Private Sub btnFactorial_Click( _
ByVal eventSender As System.Object, _
ByVal eventArgs As System.EventArgs) _
Handles btnFactorial.Click
Dim x As Double
Dim Fact As Double

lblOutput.Text = "To determine the Factorial of a number. " _
& "Please enter a number less than 10."
& "Then, click on the Factorial Button to view the results."

x = Val(txtInput.Text)

Fact = Factorial(x)
lblOutput.Text = ("")
lblOutput.Text = (" " & x & "! is " & Fact)
End Sub

Private Function Factorial(ByRef x As Double) As Double
If x <= 1 Then
Factorial = 1
Factorial = x * Factorial(x - 1)
End If

End Function

Well, you'd have a label, a textbox, and a button. The user would enter a number in the textbox & click the button-then this would calculate the factorial & display it in the label. BTW, the lblOutput instructions don't belong here. They'd not only not show up until the user clicked on the button (and how would they know to do that if the instructions aren't shown?) but they'd also be overwritten by the output.

Welcome to TSG Jeismair,
I worked with this issue in 2012.(I did a TSG thread on it). Seems we were not able to autoprint a pdf. The best I could come up with was to open the PDF so the user could then manually print. He was only wanting to print 1 page. So your request may be different.
