REMark out a group of lines

VB5 and VB6 environments include a pair hidden commands that let you remark and unremark a group of statements. These commands are hidden in the sense that they can be found on the secondary Edit toolbar that isn’t displayed by default. To make these commands available, right-click anywhere on the main toolbar and select “Edit”.

However, you should be aware that there is another method that lets you quickly exclude a group of statements from the execution flow. The trick is simple: just put a #If 0 Then … #End If directive around the statement block, as in:

#If 0 Then    ' ....    ' this is the block of statements    ' that you want to comment out    ' ....#End If

This second method works also under VB4 and has the added advantage that you can “un-comment” the block of statements by simply changing the “0” into any non-zero value. The only limitation is that the statements in the block must be syntactically correct, otherwise the program won’t compile.
