What do you mean by standards.  Coding standards are usually determined by where you work.  If it is interface standards, consider purchasing a copy of the Windows Interface Standards Book.

There are two standards Coding standards and User Interface standards. For Coding standards you can look in Programmers guide for Visual Basic Coding Conventions and for user interface check out chapter creating the User Interface. These are Basic guidelines. Allthough each company has it's own coding standards but above stated are the basic standards.
