Hi there, I am using the VB5.0 enterprise, I read the book "Client/Server How to " by waite group. It uses the Microsoft outline control very often. But I couldn't find that control. I installed it with full installation. I checked the ODBC list drivers, I had SQL server, ODBC Oracle etc. what else do I need to do to find that control? Please help me out. It was driving me crazy!

The Outline control has been superseded by TreeView and is not installed as part of the VB5 installation.  It, along with a number of other "obsolete" controls are to be found on the CD-ROM in a directory called (from memory) \Tools\Controls.  Other controls in here include SpinButton and, I think, even ThreeD.  The ActiveX Components book (which describes all the supplied ActiveX controls - but not the obsolete ones) has a page near the start which discusses where the obsolete controls and how to install them.
