Well since the response was so short I figured that was it, next time I will be sure to give you more time.

I am not sure if you still are linked to this but I have a quick quest for you...  I have been writing VB code on and off for the last 2 years and to be honest I am self taught never really read anything on it other than searching the web for commands and such.

My question is...
Is there a resource that I can I find details on the different references and libraries, what commands each enable, what references there are outside what may be currently referenced in the editor that I am using..  ETC..  I understand how references work...  And since I am still learning I thought that would be useful...  I have used google to look for them, I looked under "VB"+"References" and have found references to books and tutorials but I am looking for something more specific with the details of the OCX, DLL, and TLB files.  Appreciate it!

i'm still here ;)

unfortunately, i too am like you where i learned VB mostly by doing and A LOT from doing research for questions from here.
As far as books go, i don't even have a visual basic book, MSDN has pretty much everything i've ever needed.  

i'm sure there is probably a book out there, but you should really take a look in MSDN first b/c the info is probably in there... you just have to know what to look for which is the hard part... but that's what this place is for ;))

good luck!

I wasn't really looking for a book, I was hoping to find a site.  I tried MSDN and when I entered the name of the file it didn't know what I was talking about.  For instance the MSCOMCTL.OCX & MSCOMCT2.OCX... When I entered mscomctl it said that it had no information on the search criteria.  Well that sucks, in that case I guess I will just post more questions.  =) Thanks
