Hi JOE007007:
First rule:
VB.NET is NOT VB7!
It is a NEW, different language, that although is called VB, and has certain similarities with VB6, it should be looked at as if it had a completely different name.

The agreed approach amongst many EE experts that have programmed in both platforms is that it is best to:

Write new programs in VB.NET
Mantain old programs in VB6

 Hello,
  There are some differences between VB and VB.NET, I list them here:

  To run a VB program (after compiled) you need msvbvmXX.dll (eg, msvbvm60.dll). To run a VB.NET program, you need dot Net framework installed.
  VB is an object-based programming language, VB.NET is an object oriented programming language.
  To catch exception in VB, you use "On error go to"; on VB.NET you can you the more structured "try-catch-finally".
  In general, if you can do something in VB, you can do it in VB.NET, but not opposite direction.
  And this is just a small list, you can find more here:

The biggest difference is that VB.NET is truly object oriented.  In VB6 and previous, you could only fake it at best.  Also, VB.NET, and the rest of the .NET family all use a common set of classes, called the common runtime library, or CLR.  This makes porting code between languages very easy, as well as different languages compiling to nearly identical code (Assuming the same pseudo-code).

This was definitely not the case with VB6.
