Does anyone know of a tool that can list the forms, subs, functions, variables that are not being used in a large legacy VB6 project that is free and/or inexpensive?

Also - is there are tool out there that will make it easy to add code that will record when a sub or function is actually used and write it to a database?  I'd put in the bit where and how to save it but there are just too many places for me to do this manually...

I have used VB Watch 2 (http://www.aivosto.com/vbwatch.html). It does code profiling as well as adds debugging code to a project. Not free, but worth the price if you have a project that is running slowly or need to find unused code sections.

VB Project Eye has a free version. I've never used it though, so I can't vouch for how effective it is or whether it will do everything you want.

If I remember correctly MZ-Tools (which is free for VB6) can find dead code: http://www.mztools.com/v3/mztools3.aspx
