I have transitioned to a new job and am in the process of documenting various workflows and data sources.  Many include Access databases - and others include .exe files that appear to have been created from .vbw

The original developer is no longer here.  I need to determine what these files do.

Is there a way to read these .vbw files without having to purchase Visual Studio?

Thanks,
je

Thanks for the quick resonse.  I was able to open the files in notepad -- but not sure that I understand what's in there -- just some formatting numbers.

I'll need to get approval to download Visual Studio Express -- even if free -- firewall issues.

Thanks again,
je
