Visual Basic 6.0 Connecting With Word
Greeting VB-er's:

I have a quick question....

I have a VB 6.0 application which is the front end for our IT department's software/application inventory mdb (access). One of the features of this application is that many of our projects, some created here in-house and others by consultants have word documents which describe the design planning, system requirements, etc. I have a command button on my search form which opens the word document which correlates with the Application name.

My question: I have attached the code below which searches the path and opens the word document if it exists. We are currently in the middle of a migration to Office 2000 from 97. So, some computers have Office 97 and others have Office 2000. In my code I have to reference the Office 97 winword exe in order to launch word: I will admit that I don't have much experience in Word-VB integration and this might not be the best way to do it.

Is there a way to check for which version of word is being run on the cpu before returning the Shell function? Or, even better, is there a way to avoid this command string in general? I really want to avoid paths if possible. Is there some sort of method that automatically calls the version of word found on the CPU? Any ideas would be great, because right now a 2000 user would not be able to open the word documents from this application because they no longer have the valid command string.

THE CODE BELOW: (Function and event code).

Private Sub WordCommand_Click()
Dim Retval
Dim file As String
Dim command As String

command = "C:Office97officeWinword.EXE"

file = "\SHAHANVRvol1userHANOVERhelp_deskCurrentApplicationsdocs" & FoundAppName & ".DOC"

If FileExists(file) Then
Retval = Shell(command & " " & file, vbMaximizedFocus)
MsgBox ("No word document found for this application")
Exit Sub
End If
End Sub

Public Function FileExists(sPath As String) As Boolean

On Error Resume Next

FileExists = False '// default

If Right$(sPath, 1) = "" Then sPath = Left$(sPath, Len(sPath) - 1)

If Dir$(sPath) <> "" Then
FileExists = True
End If

If Err.Number <> 0 Then
FileExists = False
End If

End Function

p.s.-I know this is an ideal VBA forum question, but I am using VB 6.0 so there will be some differences between the two

Connecting To Oracle Through Visual Basic
Hi Everyone,
I have a general question for all of you that know about oracle. The company that I currently work for is migrating all data to oracle databases. We currently use a pretty messy hybrid of access, db2, and SQL. I have several applications that I have developed in Visual Basic 6.0 that need to grab data from these tables. I suppose when the conversion is complete I will have to change all of the connections in my programs. How can this be done? Can this be done?

Below is the typical code I use to retrieve data from my current databases, could someone please tell me what a equivalent would be for an Oracle database? With this sort of connection I have to use recordsets, is Oracle the same way?

Set dbpubA = New ADODB.Connection
dbpubA.CursorLocation = adUseClient
dbpubA.ConnectionString = _
"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
"Data Source=" & pub_path & ";" & _
"jet oledb:database password=marioso;" & _
"Persist Security Info=False"

SQLstmt = ""
SQLstmt = "SELECT date_complt, site_number, site_name, site_address, " & _
"site_city, site_state, site_zip, devices, total FROM queue WHERE complt = True and posted = False"
Dim RS_not_posted As ADODB.Recordset
Set RS_not_posted = New ADODB.Recordset
RS_not_posted.Open SQLstmt, dblocA, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic, adCmdText

Submission of any other helpful links etc would be very greatly appreciated!

I've got the jist down for using VB(6.0) to connect to an Access Databse using ODBC. I've been able to read from tables and query, but MSSQL is just making me run into problems because I can't figure out what needs to be different. If anyone could show me a brief course, or even give me directly what I need, that would be great. Thanks!

Problems Connecting A Database To A Visual Basic Project
Hi all,

OK, so my problem is that I am having problems trying to connect an Access database with my Visual Basic project.

The version of Visual Basic I am using is 6.0 and the version of Access is 2002 (as in the Office XP suite).
After setting my DataControl's Databasename property to the database, I get the following error message during run-time:

"Unrecognized database format '[pathname]System Data.mdb'."

However when I set it to a database I made with the Visual Data Manager Add-In, it works fine. I'd prefer to use a database I've created in Access.

Can someone come forward with some suggestions?

Many Thanks

Connecting Sql Server Database To Visual Basic Application
ok let me explain what i'm trying to do:
I have a database that i have created using sql server 8.0
I am trying to access that database using some forms that I'm now creating in Visual Basic. I want to be able to read information from it, modify it and even delete some records.
My limited knowledge tells me that for this I have to use a data control on the form and fill in it's properties (the connect, database name, recordsource ). Is this correct so far and if so, why don't i see in the connect field sql server? I can only see access, dbase, excel, foxpro and so on ...
Do I need to create a new DSN with ODBC and if so how do I do that and how does that help me?
I hope I'm not too confused and I am making some sense.
Thank you!

Visual Basic Items Removed From Visual Basic.NET
A while ago (maybe up to a year) I had found a web page (probably a Microsoft MVP's home age) that had a list of about 100 things that were removed from Visual Basic in the transition to Visual Basic.NET. As it is, I would like to look at that again, but I can't seem to find it on my computer. Does anyone remember this page and/or have a copy of the link or the file that was on it. It has particular things like Debug.Print is no longer valid and MsgBox function is not supported. I've look on Microsoft's website and found a great deal of information about implementation difference, but I can't seem to locate this particular piece. If anyone could help I would appreciate it very much.

Thanks in Advnance

Basic Connecting
Ive read the www.winsockvb tutorial alot of times and i can get my game to listen for connection but when i try to connect i get: run-time error object required. when i click debug i get this highlighted: Winsock1.RemoteHost = Text1.Text ' set computer i.p to connect to as the texbox

this is my outgoing code that doesnt seem to work:
Private Sub Command1_Click()
Winsock1.RemoteHost = Text1.Text
Winsock1.RemotePort = 7777
End Sub

on a successful connection dont know if this works yet either.

' alert the user to successful connect
StatusBar1.Panels(1).Text = "Status:Attack successful"

What Are Advantages Of Visual Basic .net Over Visual Basic 6.0?
I am thinking of installing Visual (standard version) in place of Visual Basic 6.0. I dont know what are the disadvantages of it and I am hesitating to do that. I thought that I should ask the forum before making this decisions.

Would someone help me to know the followings.
1. If I install, and if I do programming in, will I be able to run it in Visual Basic 6.0?

2. Can I do everything that I do in Visual Basic 6 in Visual Basic .net?

3. Are there things that I can do in Visual Basic . net which can not be done in Visual Basic 6.0?

4. Would you recommend Visual in place of Visual Basic 6.0?

Thanks in advance.

Basic Question About Excel Macros And Visual Basic
I have a macro in Excel that takes some input on data ranges and produces charts based on the input. I want to place those charts (a number of them are generated) at a certain point in my excel worksheet. I know I can nudge it over by a certain amount but I can never tell where Excel will place them so I would like to just say "hey chart, sit here". Being able to do that in relation to cells would be great. Also, I would like to know if there is any way to resize the chart without using the percent. Once again, in realtion to cells would be great. Thanks for your help.

Visual Basic Development && The Visual C++ Shared Objects
I having a really irritating problem. I'm developing an Add-in in Visual Basic... however, to do the development I'm doing, I require the "Visual C++ shared Objects" reference to be added to the project.

Here in lies the problem. I also need the VB command left [as in left string copy - ie. left("aaaaa", 2)] The only problem is that by adding the "Visual C++ shared Objects" reference, the LEFT command is overridden with the C++ version which returns a long (or something like that).

In the References window, I've already set "Visual C++ shared Objects" to the lowest possible priority... is there anyway to get around this arrangement?

Thanks in advance,
