Take a look at this.  I searched the web for converting c# to vb and found this.

It is an immediate converter.

It also converts from vb to c#.

Since I really only know vb I entered a sample if/then/else construct.

if a = b then
   c = d
else
   e = f
end if

the result displayed was:
if (a == b) {
      c = d;
}
else {
      e = f;
}

Sorry I might have worded it wrong or maybe I missunder stand you question so I will try to elaberate,
I have a table that has a predecessor and a Successor as you would in windows explorer, I need to crawl through the table and climb down throug the tree and test for certain vlues as it goes,
Now these are not folders they are fields in a table
i have included a  diagram of what the data to be and the diagram of what would be represented and were the code would have to cllimb to pick up every number. Again these are not folders but just numbers were the folders repreent the tree arm represented by the numbers

I read that "i have the code in C#" and thought you'd only need to translate this code to VB in order to get your result.

Can you elaborate the problem with which you need help?

Try a real life example.
This would help me and other experts zero in on the best answer for you.

thanks robert for  your input.in real life
there is a table in  msproject "task dependences"  that has two f fields in it PredeccessorTaskUnique ID and SuccessorTaskUniqueID and the form a hirarical tree depending on how you join the components together in project, what i need to do is to start at the top of the tree and crawl through the table and go down through every number and it children to the next child tillit runs out of children  and then climb back and continue on till all has been serched. all branches, thats it, its just a recursive algarisim but done in VB.  the table above is what would appear in project .

Do you mean you'd like to be able to display via a report this multilevel/heirarcy?

Another way of saying this is that you want to take a flat table and print a relation that goes many levels deep.

Level 1
       Level 2
Level 1
       Level 2
              Level 3
                    Level 4
Level 1
        Level 2

#1 is Level 1
#s 2 and 5 would be level 2
#s 3,4,6,7,12,13 would be level 3
and so on.
