Or, maybe it's just another example of not having the correct tools at your disposal???? I believe Mike mentioned that he misses the compile listing from RPG - presumably for the cross-referencing capabilities..... "VBXRef 2000 VBXRef 2000 is a cross reference utility designed as an add-in to Microsoft's Visual Basic 5/6. It enables you to quickly cross-reference your code with minimal effort. VBXRef 2000 is also a complete project navigational aid. Features include Quick Find, which allows you to select a variable in your code and immediately locate all occurences of it, and printing capabilities. Retail price $89.99" www.becubed.com There are hundreds, if not thousands, of utilities available for VB that will help you do just about anything you can imagine. With all due respect to Mike, I suggest that the "High Cost of Cheap Software" might be more appropriately referred to as the "High Cost of Ignorance".
