Are there any good books out there that teach vbscript that don't include all the web development stuff ? i'm trying to develop a program using vb script. i need a book that outlines the scripting model, without all the html. it's not a web application that i'm trying to develop, all the books out there include all this information that is unnecessary to me.

If you have Visual Basic, you can add a reference to a blank VB project to the Microsoft Sripting Runtime, and then use the Object Browser to see all the available functionality.

www.w3schools.com is also another good source.

I have the same opportunity, developing processes to handle data as a back end to an existing software package where the front end screens are already in place.

I found that the MSDN sight has a section on VBScript that has helped me more as far as language structure than any of the books I've come across to this point.  

Here's the URL I use to get there:
