VBA Knowledge vs VB Knowledge

P: 4
I am interviewing for a job that requires Access, VBA, and VB. I have 13+ years of experience using VBA for Access. I have also used VB 6.0 some, but not too much. Can someone give me an opinion on how difficult it would be to go from VBA to using VB to write code? Thanks.

Thanks. I have checked out the sight and will atleast review all of the tutorials today. I think that my concern is the data connections and I have used them before, so hopefully that is the biggest obstacle and I can overcome it quickly.

Thanks. My biggest concern is data controls. It seems that would be the biggest difference. Am I correct about that? If so, I will need to brush up on that. If you have any material that you can share, they would be greatly appreciated.

Assuming that you will be writing in VB.NET, you also have to learn the NET framework objects and the ADO objects. It would be helpful if you worked through a book like Murach’s VB.NET Database Programming with ADO.NET
