When I try to add a VB3 form into my VB5 project I get the following message:
"Facpay.frm is in binary format and cannot be loaded into VB5"
How do I load this form into my VB5 project.  I am trying to convert a VB3 application to a VB5 application.  All I have are the .FRMs,.BASs and the .EXE.  I do not have a copy of VB3.

What VBXs are in your application?

Commented:
I have no idea what VBXs are in the application.  A disk was placed on my desk with the source and executable with a note saying that my department will like to use this application, with modifications.  Now I have to work on two VB applications at once, and I am just learning VB. Fun!!

I will pass the sugestions to my supervisor.

There should be a file which is basically the project header file.  I believe it has the extension .prj.  This file should have been saved as text.  If you look at this file with notepad, you will be able to tell which VBXs are used.

The reason I ask is that, without the full complement of OCXs to replace the VBXs when converting, the conversion will be incomplete and unusable.  If I have the replacements, I believe will be able to convert for you.

I contacted the author of the application and asked him to save everything as text.  I justed got it and everything loaded in to VB5 OK except for the picture box.  I have corrected that and the application runs.  Thanks for the help.
