Just wanted a quick word on how to get familiar with Visual Basic after only using Borlan's product (Turbo C++ v4.5).

How would I get code which compiles in Borland to compile in Visual Basic 5.0?  How can I learn the differences in syntax?

Porting from any C++ to VB takes a working knowledge of both languages.

The best 1st book I've seen for VB is "Teach Yourself VB in 21 Days".

Ok, I was hoping that this version of VB contained some tutorial stuff, but I guess not.

Thanks for the info.  I would have accepted this answer but the option to grade didn't pop up.  If you can trigger the grade screen, I'll close this out.

I didn't answer at first because there may have been other opinions on good books.

But since you ask, I'll answer.  Thanks.
