Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Include a module with in it a sub called "Main()"
The Main sub should reside in a module, not in a form or class module !

For instance :

Public sub Main()

End sub


Now do not forget to set the property of the project properties : Tab general, set the startup project to sub main.
