Assuming no prior computer programming knowledge on the part of the reader, this book uses Visual Basic 6.0 to explore the fundamentals of programming in general and to explain how to use Visual Basic as a front end to take control of major applications such as Microsoft Office. A broad range of examples, case studies, exercises, and programming projects gives readers significant hands-on experience. Introducing good programming practices that are in-step with modern programming methodology, this book uses well-chosen examples to illustrate every new concept. It includes carefully designed examples that both reinforce the text and challenge the reader to make original connections. The book also incorporates real, current, and sometimes humorous data throughout to add fun and interest to the overall presentation. The fourth edition of An Introduction to Programming with Visual Basic 6 has been revised to include the relevant new features of VB6.0, an expanded discussion of debugging and error-prevention, and updated and revised real-life data. An essential reference for every programming professional.
