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?

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!
