How can I work on a VB6-format project in both VB6 and VB.NET? I want to move back and forth between the two - because my workplace has VB6 and at home I have VB.NET, and the project MUST be in VB6.

the only way it would be possible is if you modularized (made .dll files) your program, so your vb.net files would be read by your vb6 machine at work and visa versa

You can't move the project back and forth.  You can attempt to convert the VB6 project to a VB.Net project using the wizard but then you can only work in it with VB.Net.

It's getter harder to find copies of VB6 Standard Edition but you can still find lots of copies of Professional Edition.  The price range varies from $300-$500:

If I were you, I would just upgrade your computer at your workplace to VB.net
