I designed it as a client server application but now the user want it to be accessible in the WEB, i mean they want this program running on the browser. Is it possible for me to Do it. If so HOW? Can you give a sample code for me to have an idea how to do this thing.

Try this URL.  There is a section that talks about the "VB ActiveX Document Migration Wizard" that should interest you.  You need to convert your client forms to active X documents that will run under a web browser, your server side will depend on how you are attached to the internet.  I hope this gets you going in the right direction....

Are you using ODBC for data access?

The tough move:
1) Data - If you are using ODBC, you can migrate to MS ADO as a data structure, allowing connection to an ODBC datasource over the internet.
2) GUI - Create an ActiveX control, and implement your forms in the control.
3) Business Objects - attach you classes, DLLs, modules, etc to the ActiveX GUI.

4)To the web - pack it with the setup wizard, using the Internet Setup option, and use the provided web page template as an example of how to design a page around it.

Good Luck!
