In the UK we have three versions of Visual Basic 5.0

Visual Basic 5.0
Visual Basic Pro 5.0
Visual Basic Enterprise 5.0

I'm am looking to buy the standard edition but what am I missing
out on?.  Is it just more Active-x controls?

No. it's not. To see most of the interesting features you will need at least Professtional Edition.

Enterprise Edition is the super one where you will have,

1. Feature to build Active X component using multithreaded tech.

2. Full support for COM.

3. RDO/RDC

and many more.

Both Professional and Enterprise will provide,

1. Native Code compilation

2. Creating you own ActiveX Controls and Doc

3. Complete DAO
