I am using VB 6.0..Although the book from QUE is titled VB 6.0, it contains VB 5.0 samples as indicated in the version of form1.frx in every sample that I am working on. It is obvious it is QUE's problem.

I had emailed them a note last Saturday about my problem. Hope they will be able to update the samples. And also their reply.

The book is printed in 1999. it should have the title Practical VB 5.0 as long as the accompanying cd contains 5.0 samples. Hope to hear good news from QUE.

Nevertheless, is there an utility that can convert samples 5.0 to version 6.0?
