Can you clirfy this question a little?  Are you looking for information regarding the Macros?  I can tell you about Visual C++.  In VC++ 5.0 and 6.0 (I haven't tried 7.0 but I assume it's the same), "_DEBUG" is defined (without the quotes) when the current program is compiled in debug mode.  If you are talking about the C++ code and not the macros, you can use this with other Preprocessor directives in the code like this:

#ifdef _DEBUG
   // put your debug code here
#else
   // put you normal code here fr Release mode
#endif

or:

#ifndef _DEBUG
   // Put your release code here
#else
   // Put you debug here
#endif

   I would look up the #ifdef/#else/#endif for information.  I hope this helps.  I don't know enough about VB to tell you what to do.
