VB Functions by Category

If you have any good URL's or white pages to enhance this web page, please EMAIL them to me -  michael@michael-thomas.com.

Use VB's help to find help on how to use the function and it's arguments.   Click on Help, then "Microsoft Visual Basic Help Tools".  Next choose "Language Reference".  Next choose the corresponding book:   Function, Method, Statement.  (Note:  If the command is not a function, then I'll specify.  EX:  (statement) )

I hope this table will help those starting out in VB.
