ei, you need to make a new command button then
code it like this:

formname.unload me

try using this instead.
it will unload all forms and then end all processes.

dim f as Form
for each f in forms
     unload F
     next
          end

Thanks guys...

I was having a complete brain fart day...

I also had a typo in a public variable that drove me INSANE trying to figure out why the simple program wouldn't work.

When I finally saw it I fixed it ran it once then powered down and walked away..

Some days I just create more work for myself...

Again,
Thanks...

Thank you for this. This did not however answer my original question, how to close a program. It does close a vb application that is running but I wanted to know how to close an exe file. I'll get back to you when I figure out how to do that. Thanks again.

Lets say you wanted to close Notepad

Dim myProcess As Process = New Process
      myProcess.StartInfo.FileName = "notepad.exe"
  
        
      Case Else ' do whatever in this else
        myProcess.Kill()

Thank You for all the replies.

I did find what I needed, how to use a VB6 program to close another program.

It uses API commands to do it. Here's where I found the answer.
