I don't see anything that really needs "converting"...other than minor syntax changes.

(1) You can get rid of the "set" keyword.
(2) Not really a conversion, but you really should be using & instead of + for String concatenation.
(3) You need parenthesis around the parameters in MsgBox...better yet, use the new MessageBox class:

    MessageBox.Show("Postal code: " & CStr(objSA.PostalCode))

instead of:

    MsgBox("Postal code: " & CStr(objSA.PostalCode))
