I would like to create or use a VB App that will scan other VB applications and create a sumary of the objects within.  I.e. output to a text file a list of all classes, functions, sub, etc. etc. detailing the expected input and output type for the function.

This would enable me to created documentation on the projects easier.  Anyone help?

All information you need is stored in *.vbp files. Open this file as plain text and scan all lines. Also you can use API functions which works with INI files (GetProfileString)

This means some coding work :-)

You have to look into .vbp files, find all entries that start with CLASS=, FORM=, MODULE= and so on to find there the path of the other files to open.

You may read .vbg files first if you have project groups, there you find all the .vbp files referenced

I did it already, but unfortunately my source code got lost during a server migration, I would have given it (sorry)
