Sales Support: A Hybrid Visual Basic 6.0 & Visual Basic 2005 Application

Visual Studio 2005

This is a four-part series of articles to show that it is not necessary to migrate a Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 application to Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 in order to take advantage of .NET functionality. "Sales Support" is a very simple sales-force support application that allows the user to look up accounts, contacts, and forecasted sales. The application is not intended to be a complete sales-force automation solution. Instead, it is designed to be a representative placeholder for an existing line-of-business Visual Basic 6.0 application. In addition, it serves as the anchor for a number of logical application enhancements that are best implemented by using Visual Basic 2005.
