Introduction to Visual Basic
Visual Basic is a programming language and development environment created by Microsoft.
Visual Basic provides a graphical user interface GUI that allows the developer drag and drop objects into the program as well as manually write program code.
Visual Basic, also referred to as "VB," is designed to make software development easy and efficient
Visual Basic 6.0
1. Visual Basic is a programming language and integrated development environment.
2. It derives from the much older BASIC programming language, and so is considered useful and easy programming language for the beginner to learn.3. Visual Basic 6.0 was the final edition of Visual Basic.
Feature Of visual basic 6.0

2. Professional Includes advanced features such as tools to develop ActiveX and Internet controls.
3. Enterprise In addition to all Professional features, it also includes tools such as Visual
Features of visual basic
Data access feature
Guo Interface: - VB is a Graphical User Interface language. This means that a VB program will always show something on the screen that the user can interact with to get a job done.
Modularization: - It is considered good programming practice to modularize your programs. Small modules where it is clearly indicated what comes into the module and what goes out makes a program easy to understand.
Object Oriented: - Object Oriented Programming is a concept where the programmer thinks of the program in "objects" that interact with each other. Visual Basic forces this good programming practice.
Debugging: - Visual Basic offers two different options for code debugging:- Debugging Managed Code Runtime Debugger The Debugging Managed Code individually debugs C and C++ applications and Visual Basic Windows applications. The Runtime Debugger helps to find and fix bugs in programs at runtime.
Data Access Feature: - By using data access features, we can create databases, scalable server-side components for most databases, including Microsoft SQL Server and other enterprise-level database.
Macros IDE: - The Macros integrated development environment is similar in design and function to the Visual Studio IDE. The Macros IDE includes a code editor, tool windows, the properties windows and editors.
