Download a copy of VB.Net Express from MS. It is free. Go to a good book
shop and ask them for a beginners book on VB.Net. Then start reading from
page 1 and going through the samples.

Learn all you can about the .NET Framework, the Visual Basic .NET language
and the Visual Studio development environment.
What is require?
Technically, just the .NET Framework. But practically, all the items in my
first response.
What the steps?
Understand that it could take years before you "master" any of this. But
first, download the free Visual Basic .NET 2008 Express Edition development
enviornment and pick up a beginner's book on VB .NET 2008.
(http://www.microsoft.com/express/vb/Default.aspx)
What content should I know?
Too much to say here and frankly, if you are new to all this, none of it
would make any sense anyway. You just need to start at the beginning.
Learning Object Oriented Programming principles.

This is going to take quite a commitment from you, in terms of study and
time. First, ask yourself if you really want/need to become a "master"
programmer.

hmmm
become a "master" programmer.
I do not even call myself programmer , or software engineer , i am a
software developer

You are good if customers are statisfied with your work , and you do not
have to shame to show the source to a developer or here in these newsgroups

It is just a mather of what the term "master"means to you for me a master =
guru status like Francesco Balena , if you mean just to become a good
VB.Net programmer i would say read his book "Programming Microsoft Visual
Basic .Net" wich is the MS oficila core reference buy also the MCSD or
MCTS training kits study them an get certified ( this will help you to get
a good job ) and become active in several comunity`s ( like this one )

A Guru status however you can not become yourself ,,, if you are really
really good you might be rewarded with this status by your customers (
local ) or by the industry

Considering the OP is a "just an Office 2007 user"... I suggest he/she take
an OOP course at a local college/university. Don't just take a VB.NET
programming course - because those tend focus on VB.NET syntax and do not
provide students with a good theoretical foundation.

Michel,
Meanwhile, i had a book Michael Halvorson's "Step by Step Visual Basic
2005". Good Book, impressed, good examples. What do you think for this
book if you know the book?

Thanks.

I do know the writer Michael Halvorson's he has also written some good VB
pre .Net books ( VB 6 )
however i never buy the " step by step" series as i found them in the past
a waste of my monney, as i was almost always reading what i already knew
this is probably because i am an early adaptor
( worked with ADO when everyone stil used DAO etc etc )

For a interesting new technology i buy the " Introducing " series , but
most of the time this is one time reading material , as a lot of things have
changed in the end product ( i am a autodidact with a strong memory from
things i have read once )

The " Developer Reference and Focused Topics " are more my books as i see
myself regularly grabbing one they are worth there monney cause they are
good reading material and stay in the book shelve as a reference guide .

Michel
