Creating forms using visual basic programming
Posted on 2002-03-06
I notice that MS Office programs like Powerpoint, ACCESS, and WORD have in their menu's a place to build visual basic. How do you make this work when you build forms? Is the visual basic form you design dependent/independent from the application you made it in (i.e. ACCESS, PPT, WORD, etc).
Let's keep it simple. say I just want to create a user friendly menu screen that I can click on its buttons to open a particular file on my computer much like the same way you do in an html link from the web. Do I need a special software program to create this? Is it an EXE file when I finish or how does the form open? I would like to make this FORM INDEPENDENT from the application/file it will eventually open.
I appreciate any comments you have.
