Converting VB to ASP

Hello,
I've never heard of a Conversion tool that worked well enough to justify
using it. I haven't checked around on this subject for quite some time. I
was trying to find out if there existed a tool (descent tool) that wold
convert VB6 code to VB.Net or C# ASP and if so, is it any good.

Thanks for any help...

You probably won't find a "good" tool because of the nature of the
differences between VB 6.0 and VB.NET. Much of the VB 6.0 syntax still
works, but for optimization and OO design, much of that same "acceptable"
code should really be rewritten using VB.NET new syntax and OO capabilities.

The best you are going to get is to install Code Advisor into Visual
Studio 6. Run this against the application you wish to upgrade to VB.Net
and make as many of the alterations it suggests as possible. Then open
the project in VB.Net and run the Upgrade Wizard.

Its NOT Clean or Slick or Easy but it can help.

Code Advisor is available for download from MSDN.

Keep in mind that the Upgrade Wizard in VB.NET won't upgrade most of the
older style VB 6.0 function calls although there are .NET objects with
equivalent method calls that are (in many cases) more efficient.
