For transfer purposes only, there are utilities that let you convert any file to plain ASCII file (UUENCODE and UUDECODE). Is this what you need?

Hmmm... i think that what u want is a decompiler to revert the binary file to it's source code... isn't it? If so, you can found some VB3 decompilers at Internet...

Hi All,

What ys got is the VB3 source files in binary format! In VB3, you got options for storing the file in binary or text format. He/she want to turn that to text format.

Hi ys,

I think only thing you can do is to find a VB3 compiler:-(

No, if you have vb3, the only thing that you need is open those binary files inside VB3 IDE and save them again but selecting as text in the dialog.
