thnks for your suggestion guys..

i wish it could help me..



I recently have gone through some life changes where I have switched platforms and languages, from IBM's RPG series of languages RPG2, RPG3, RPG3, RPG-ile, of which I was on the IBM Toronto Language Lab customer advisory council for the AS/400 - i-series platform , I helped them design the RPG-ile language! That's a feather in my career cap of 27 years, but times change and I work from home now as a freelancer and have recently embraced Visual basic while I was recovering from some medical issues which are fine now, thank you, knock on wood.

Anyway, I'm an old dog and I decided that the best way to learn new tricks was to pretend I had to do typical tasks that any prommer would have to write, thinking them through in RPG, my old language, then writing them in Visual Basic. I made a small application that is button driven that explains what each button is all about and what kind of programming task it accomplishes in VB.

You are welcome to it, I will zip it up and send you the source code for free if you want it. For the application, I used a small relational database with doctors and the medications they prescribe me.

My email is mailto:[email removed]

Good luck and it's free for the asking.

Best regards,
Bill Purkins
