Hi.
    I have a product developed in Visual Basic (Language:English).
Now  I have to give it to my French client and the product has to be translated to French.

I tried to use the same product on a French Win 95 machine with MS Office 97(French: As I use OLE in my product) and VB (English version) but it does'nt work properly.

What is that I need to do to make my product work on a French Windows  95 machine with Office 97 (French). My problem is not with the language translation (For menus, messages etc...). It is only with the code that I use as it cannot read dates and textfrom Excel sheets which are in French.  

   Thank You.

The problem you're havings seems to be of international issue. Remember that Europeans write dates in the form "day. month. Year". Therefore make sure you use the Format() and CDate functions when converting dates into strings, etc. You can find plenty of documentation about these function in the VB help or online documentation. If you have more problems, please be more specific about the code that fails, so that I can take a look at it.

good luck
