    Guys,

    Im looking for a book on VB. Im trying to learn VB, currently have no experience with scripting, and need a good book for starting out.

    Bear in mind that im in account administration, so i cant do high-level activities, and a book focusing on this type of thing would largely be useless to me.

    Any ideas on a good one to get?

    Whilst I have no idea what the difference is either I do have a copy of this book from MS that seems to be fairly good. If scripting is what you're looking to learn.

    I have to admit though, that I have only read the first few chapters, sort of lost interest in scripting after that! Its now sitting pretty on my shelf looking good though!

    :biggrin

    VBScript is an interpreted script language from Microsoft that is a subset of its Visual Basic programming language. VBScript can be compared to other script languages designed for the Web such as Netscape's JavaScript.
