I wonder if anybody could help me. I am doing my project in visual basic, now the code is very big i want to put that code in my documentation. but the problem is cut paste technique is not good as it makes all code in mess. Is there any other way to do this.
Thank you

Am I correct in assuming your documentation is in MS Word?

If so, simply save your code to a text file, then in MS Word, select Insert, File, YourFile.txt ...

I hope this is what you were looking for.

Hi dsacker,
VBdocman sounds like something you might be interested in - it creates (or helps) docs to your source in HTML (or whatever): http://www.vbdocman.com/ 
Or for just exporting the code as HTML: Try Codex (free): http://cladasoft.com/freestuff.php?pid=6
A simpler, free tool might be: http://www.codeproject.com/winhelp/doclibtool.asp (but it doesn't use your source, just the objects)

Hi Rafi,
It's very simple, because your VB Code files (.frm, .cls,.bas) can read by any text reader application as notepad, wordpad, Ms Word,...

In the first part of file will be some declarations of your menu or objects in your form file (if this form has menu or something else).  
And then it's your code you need.

Good Luck!!!
