what do i need to do to learn v.b

• Go to some site and download tutorials!! Should be right on this site! Then, when you encounter problems, you can post them here!!

Coding is kind of like algebra. You use variables to represent numbers. You write statements to manipulate those numbers. A program is just a series of logical and mathematical statements. It's really fairly simple to get started.

[code]
Dim x As Integer 'this says to create a variable named x which stores integers
x = 3 'this says to assign x the value 3
If x = 3 Then 'this should be obvious, if it isn't, you need to find something other than programming to do with your life
MsgBox "Foo!" 'this uses the builtin function MsgBox to display a Message Box on your screen
End If 'this closes the "If" statement scope and tells the
[/code]

Very simple. Everything complicated is built on simpler things.

I'm sorry you felt offended at my previous reply.

"How do I create a new project?"

"How do I add a button to a form?"

"How do I write a function?"

etc.

Do you know any other programming languages or are you completely new to the idea?
