Hello all,

I frequently find pieces of VB code (either on EE or other places) which I would like to file away with index entries so I could find them later.  Search capabilities would also be nice.  

Does anyone know of a free program which will manage my VB snippets?

right in VB6, you have the VCM (Visual compononent manager) add-in.

and you can buy the commercial product named (Total Visual Source Book) which comes with over 90,000 lines and you can add your own http://www.fmsinc.com/products/sourcebook/index.html

I have Total Visual Source Book, and it also comes with Code Tools, which is a group of Add-ins that make life easier in VB 6.

Hi to both responders,

Thank you so much for your suggestions.  Both looked like good products; however, both were about $100 which is money I would prefer to put in something else.  However, while following up on RichW's suggested product, I somehow came upon a product call VBCodeLibrary.  It also is a cost product ($46), but is a little cheaper than the other 2 suggestions.

However, on the VBCodeLibrary web site, the author provides free source code for an older version.  The older version lacks a lot of functionality, but will get me by (at least for a while).  In addition, it is written in VB, so gives me a chance to study some VB code someone else has written.

Again thanks to both for your suggestions.  You guys are great!
