You. can't really because the people who ask the questions often don't know what 'Visual basic classic' means.

If you do an Advanced search that includes these zones

VB 1.0 thru 5.x
Visual Basic Classic
VB Controls
VB Database
VB Objects

you'll get most of them but you'll also get VBA questions and .Net questions because as I said above people post in the wrong zones.

You can create a 'VB6' search and then save it. That's what I do.

Some of this you may already know.

1.    Go to 'Advanced Search'
2.    Uncheck 'Article' and 'Blog Entry'
3.    In 'Topics' choose 'Include' and select the zones mentioned above
4.    To get back only open questions, optionally in 'Question Type' choose 'Exclude' and 'Solutions'
5.    Optionally in 'Display' select '25' in 'Results per page' and 'Submit Date' in 'Sort by' and check 'Display results as list'
6.    In 'Saved Search' enter a 'Title' and select one of the choices in 'Alert'
7.    Click the 'Save' button

Your search can then be found in 'Saved Searches' in your 'Workspace' tab.

If you choose the 'Every Question' alert in step 6 you'll get notified every time a new question that matches your criteria is asked. Hmmm, did I just help you become my competition? :)

In any case you're welcome and I'm glad I was able to help.

My profile contains links to some articles I've written that may interest you.

i am a retired roofing contractor & 64 yrs old. started learning vb 6 in 2003. after seeing their were no roof estimating software on the web. I decided to write one. Have probably asked about 600 questions here.i used to study code to see how it works, but now I don't care. am only interested in results.
i recently moved to nevada and have nothing to do except gamble.
bought 2 keno games from the web, but they lack many features that  the casinos have.
So now i have decided to write one that goes beyond the casinos keno games. been paying VWorkers coders to write the code
so far almost $500 and almost done with one game.
This usually works like this:
Coder writes the code and sends it to me. I then reply with corrections needing fixes.
this process can go back and forth 50 times. I have found they can write code for just about anything, but lack in the understanding of what needs to be written. So every form has a button "VWorker Instructions" that opens a rtf file so i can send them pics of what needs fixing or done

Hmmm, did I just help you become my competition?
Unless simple questions were asked like:
Why can i not type into a label.
i could answer "use a textbox"
but now that is even too much effort

I sure do appreciate people like you for help.
Ps got a coder now who has been paid and trying to get him to fix errors that i found after
