Can anyone tell me whether I can write a visual basic programme from the v
basic package in Access that will do the same as the stand alone visual basic
package?

I have noted some of the free v basic code offered in this website and would
like to try them out but I only have the visual basic package that comes
with Access. Some of the visual basic code offered in this website refers
to other software i.e. excell, word etc. Can I use the code offered and 'paste
it into the visual basic software I have with Access and expect it to work
as if I was using a standalone v basic package. As a standaline package I
presume that would work with any software, you simply ask it or tell it to
do whatever with whatever proramme you ask it to. As an add on to Access,
does the vis basic programme have the same freedom.

Hope this makes sense!?
