if you are using VB6, you need VB CE:

if you are willing to use .Net (and I urge you on that way), see http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/device/overview.asp

If you're using Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 OS you need eVB.  You can download the eVB IDE software free from Microsoft.  I looks a lot like VB 6, though there are limitations.  For example, you have the power of VBScript with some APIs and a special version of ADO for database functionality.

In case you're not using Windows CE, but PalmOS (Palm & Visor handhelds), there is a suite called AppForge, which is actually an add-in for VB. You code in VB (using special controls - you don't use the regular textbox, label, etc.)

You can download a trial version at http://scripts.appforge.com/eval/afeval.asp

BTW, it also compiles to Windows CE if you do (or will) use Pocket PC.
