Dynamic VB Forms

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to create dynamic VB forms that only show controls according to a number parameter entered by the user?
A quick description.... I am new to VB and I want to create a small program that compiles surveys. The parameters to be entered are: number of categories on the survey form, number range for responses (eg 1 to 5 or 1 to 10, etc), number of surveys given out and number of surveys returned. What I need is for the form to show the right number of categories on the form according to the number entered. Everything else about this program is almost all straight math and file I/O. Also what is a good VB5 book out there??? I get confused with the selections out there now and I figure an expert will give me an informed choice rather than having to trust the blurbs on the book covers.

Thanks in advance for all the help....
George

Sorry to take so long to reply to your answer.....I was suddenly compelled to stay in a hospital for two weeks and have only gotten back to my PC tonight...

Thanks for the answer and again, sorry for the delay.....
