I'm sorry, I should have put <g> or :) or something after that line. I have no problem with Microsoft software and I didn't mean to offend anyone. I put that in because people always seem to say that and it seemed funny at the time. Obviously it didn't come across that way.

I have used Visual C++ a bit and I don't like it at all (particularly MFC) but I don't know anything much about VB other than a perceived slowness from a user's point of view. As I said in my message, I wasn't implying that VB was a bad choice, I was just making another suggestion since someone said they didn't know if there were other alternatives...

Apologetically,

Julian
