COM-Gen 2000 - Build 107 released - generates COM objects
As of 8:45 AM Eastern, on July 28, 1999, we released
build 107 of the COM-Gen 2000 beta. It's available now for
free at our web site at http://www.*-*-*.com/ . This may well
prove to be the final beta, as we have done a considerable
amount of testing and, with the help of our beta testers, we
believe we have a winner. We expect to have a final release
ready by mid-August! Changes for Build 107 are described
For those unfamiliar with COM-Gen 2000, it's a
VB6 Add-in that allows you, as a VB Developer, to cut up to
90% off your development time and create your entire middle
tier in a matter of seconds. This COM-Gen 2000 reads from any
ODBC database and generates the classes, properties, methods,
and supporting SQL and VB code necessary to insert, update,
delete, and retrieve records from any table in your database.
It also generates error handling code.

actions taken by COM-Gen 2000TM when generating files.

these fields accordingly when reading records in 'Get...s'
functions in collection classes.
