Slight variation on a previous question I had so trust it must be quite straight forward (he hopes !) Anybody know how to fill in details of the File summary using Visual Basic (5). Ie, details such as Description, Author, etc.
Thanks in advance,
Martin.

Sorry Mark? I don't understand what you are after.
It's Visual Basic v5.  
When you do Properties on an application you can normally get information regarding the file.
I notice for instance, within notepad an extra Tab, Version is vissible.  Within this information such as version, Language, product name etc is visible.  Can this be personalised when coding an application?

Hope this helps, Regards

Martin.

In your project select the Project tab, then select Project Properties. Select the Make Tab and On that page is where you fill in Version Number, and Under Version Information is Product Name , Company Name Etc.

Project menu option, Properties sub option, Make tab. Enter your data there. WHen you compile it'll be part of the programs properties. Set the version number and tell it to autoincrement.
