Could you briefly outline those VB limitations? VB is the only programming language I am familiar with. Would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks.

In the end, it just boils down to personal preference.

I would try This will be easier than learning c++ since you have a vb background. Try this book... its very good.

Visual Basic.NET Coach by Salvage, Jeff

You can get it used on Amazon for less than $30 and its retail is $75. Lots of universities use Jeff's books in the classroom. I'm using it to port a VB.NET QuantStudio program to C#.NET... so far it's been a real help!

Hope this helps you and good luck with your coding!

hi Chris,

What are the main differences between VBA and VB.Net? Thanks.

I really can't say what the differences are. I'm not all that familiar with VB so the differences aren't apparent to me. So far I would say that VB.NET and C#.NET are very similar... the difference between them seems to just be nuiances in the syntax. C# isn't all that hard to learn if you have a basic understanding of C++ and I have heard that VB.NET isn't that difficult if you have an understanding of VB. I would run a search on google for a VB.NET forum and take a look around to see what you think.
