Frustrated Beginner ! Browse Dialog Box

P: n/a
Good evening all,

Microsoft is really starting to annoy me as a new user. I am trying to
convert my code from VBA (A very user friendly laguage with generally
good help files) to Visual Studio 2005 Visual Basic (A poorly documented
language).

I am unable to find help for Visual Basic that tells me how to show the
Browse Files/Folders dialog box in this system; help shows me 50,000,001
different articles but none of them relate to me, I have found
information on openfiledialogbox, putfile and all manner of other
commands that work in things from C++ to articles written in 1999 but
nothing to help me now.

Does anyone know how to use the Browse Dialog Box in this system that
MSDN tells me is possible but won't show me how (Reference:
ms-help://MS.MSDNQTR.v80.en/MS.MSDN.v80/MS.VisualStudio.v80.en/dv_vsproj
opt/html/5035b5ba-e0e7-4198-92ef-003109202a8e.htm)

Also does anyone know how to limit help so it only relates to the
language and function you are using ? I have deselected all other
languages but still commands are returned that do not work on in Visual
Basic 2005.

At this stage I am really regretting trying to move over to this new
package. VBA is 100% more usable for a beginner.

Sorry for the level of frustration but I have been struggling with this
Help problem for the last three weeks.

Yours sincerely,

William Foster
