Can anyone point me in the direction of a full-blown large VB Project that I can study for ideas.  All the fat books sold come with little card trick examples on the CD with one or two forms and a page of code.  I need a larger something to look at, with lots of shtuff going on, many forms, lots of internal references, cross-pollination(contamination) of 2-3-4-or 5 databases, so I can figure out what to do.  But it would be nice, too, if it were comprehendable by a medium skilled user.  I'm mosly using VB Professional 5.0 with Jet created databases, accessing with code and data controls.

I can give you an assortment of stuff. Just how big do you want to get?

I've got one that has 30+ forms, does Jet data, generates graphs, etc., etc., etc.,

You'll have to sign a non-dis to get *THAT* one tho!

Other small to mediums are FTP, decoders, graphers, primitive email, etc.

My project, first of this type, is for our transportation business.  I need to stick customers from cust db and trucks from carrier db onto orders w/ From: To: Billto: etc.  Also will create a related table of trips for the orders:(orders for the customers, trips for the carriers.)  Carrier and Customer db's will have about 20,000 records along with related tables for validation etc.  The orders and trips will probably number in the 20-30000 range before archiving.   The app will one day create invoices and handle very basic accounting activities. Right now we'll have about 12 workers hitting it, in the future probably 25-30.  And other misc tables functions stuff as needed.

Any non-dis etc okeydokey.  Just need examples to create my own stuff.  This is a pretty customized job for my boss here, and I don't think I would be able to steal anything but how-to's and what-if's.  Thank you thank you.  Let me know.
