 VB5 vs VB6


>Does anyone know, or know where I can find out, if VB6 can "save as VB5".

I don't know about that, but I'd tend to doubt it as no other version has
had the "save in previous rev" option.  One outside possibility --- check
with Microsoft and find out if you buy VB6 if you can get VB5 for a nominal
fee or if you can still purchase VB5.  I remember seeing that VB5 owners
could get VB4 essentially for the shipping/handling costs so maybe the same
thing will hold with VB6.

: I need to decide whether to buy VB5 or VB6.

: I am taking my first class in VB5 this semester.  All class and lab machines
: are loaded with VB5.  I need to buy the program for my machine because of
: time constraints.  The bookstore is out of VB5 and will be getting VB6 within
: days.

: My teacher says get VB6 as soon as she can determine if she can grade my
: homework and projects with her version of VB5 or as soon as the school gets a
: copy of VB6.

I'm in the exact same situation. I bought VB6 then ordered a copy of
VB5 for a small fee ($15 or so). I had the program (CD only, no docs)
within 3 days.

VB6 does not change the forms header but it adds properties. Such as

CausesValidation, DataFormat, and DataMember. (mostly to bindable controls
such as a textbox)

Unless you want to go through all your code and pull out all these extra
things VB5 wont load it.
