Keeping the sensitivity of this topic for the lingual challenged in mind, we'd like to offer a helping hand. Click here to get information on a book that will aid you in understanding and grasping the basics of the VB language. It is written in a language that everyone can understand, even the lingual challenged themselves.
On behalf of all VB programmers, we wish you luck. [/B]
I'd recommend starting with Michael Halverson's Visual Basic 6 Step by Step from MSFT Press, followed by Gary Cornell's Visual Basic 6 from the Ground Up.
Francesco Balena's book may also be good, but I have it only on CD-ROM (came with his VB .NET book) so I've not looked at it closely.
Very useful apps can be easily wtritten using VB 6, e.g.. see Sorting Performance and Pagefile monitor
