I get a compiler error from the code below, "Expected ','". At least it looks like a comma. I've used the function from C Sharp by using a similar statement, but I have a project in VB.

Please help!!!

Rant: this kind of thing makes me hate Microsoft. This functionality could be so much easier!!!
Imports System.Configuration 'for settings
 
Dim Settings As AppSettingsReader = New AppSettingsReader()
 
Dim Addresses As String = Settings.GetValue("AlliedQuoteRequestEmailAddress", typeof(System.String))

TypeOf does something completely different in VB :)
		Dim Settings As New System.Configuration.AppSettingsReader
		Dim Addresses As String = Settings.GetValue("AlliedQuoteRequestEmailAddress", GetType(System.String))

actually, your code still needs to be cast to a string, but that was no problem
