I have an application in VB6; I want to put part of its functionality onto the web. I have Visual Studio 2008 using VB, and am familiar with OO programming (in Java), VB6 programming, and with web programming, though not all in one place.
I would like general advice on where to look to make the best (re)use of what I've got -- there's a two-page report with hundreds of fields on it, generated with MS report designer, and that's the part I would most hate to have to generate from scratch. Can I convert it somehow? I see there's a conversion tool in 2008; will it convert the report? Is there a better tool? Am I better off re-creating the report from scratch?
I'm asking because I don't want to get (another) several days into this and discover it's one of those things that only works theoretically, put there because the product people said they had to have a migration path. If I have to bite the bullet, I'd rather not have chewed on a bunch of stale non-working features first.
Any general advice out there?
