Is it possible to convert ...... Case to VB ?  Thanks for any help.

 

 

The only real failure .....is the failure to try.                               

                              Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much. 

                              Odds never change .....but probability does.

    Could you expand a little?
    What is "Case?"

    Do you have some program that you want to convert?
    Normally, a finished program cannot be converted.
    If it is source code, possibly someone (not I) knowing the code can make a different language perform the same task.

        Case is an acronym for computer assisted software engineering. It is a fancy name for the method used for writing macros. Basically I have a couple of programs that were written using macros to generate various stats info. What I was asking .....  does anyone have any experience converting the macros or code to write the macros into VB.

          Thanks SirMetro.

          Got it, Win D - sorry, my programming stops short of that.  Waaay short.  :)

              Well, if I understand the basic concept of a Macro, the purpose is to create a routine to replicate a given task repeatedly. So, with that little bit of knowledge, without knowing what the language is, could you provide a description of what the intended actions are?

              FYI, in Excel, if you activate the RECORD MACRO routine and proceed thru the same identical steps you would want the routine to process, you will, in essence establish the foundation of a macro that you can easily edit. It also acts as a great training tool to help learn the VB language even faster. Once you begin to grasp VBA, slight modification will allow you to ease over to VB.

              Good Luck,

              Sir Metro

                I surely envy you knowing about all that Basic programming, etc.

                I frequently wonder if I couldn't have been off fishing for the last year or so if I understood how to program computers.

                It's about number behavior.

                  I wish i new how to write formulas also. like if you have a data base of a states numbers you can search individually for a particular number. Takes a long time individually searching 6 way or 24 way numbers. so suppose you wanted to find all the different ways a number has or hasn't been drawn in that state. theoretically that program would search the data base and select all the picks that contained those specific numbers. like the tool Todd has on lottery post. Man what a time saver. I use that tool Todd created but for my state i need one i could check all the history not just the last 7 yrs.
