I need to write a new VB Application.  I can write VB but would like to see some examples or good layouts.  I know I want a toolbar at the top for navigation, other than that I'm looking for idea, does anyone know of a website or book with examples.

    The easiest place to start is to study the various components of Microsoft Office. For better or worse, most apps seem to fall obediently into line behind them, adopting the "look and feel" of whatever MS comes up with. The advantage to this is that your users are likely to be familiar with the basics of the interface. The disadvantage is that everything looks more or less the same. No matter, studying MS design gives you a good idea of what is the current standard.
