Changing 2 fields

Changing 2 fields

Question:
Hi, I am working on a VB 4.0 project. The project involves changing 2 fields – The date field from 6 digits to 8 digits and zipcode field from 5 to 7 digits. I need to change the entire code in the project to reflect these changes. Can you please help me with the procedure to effect these changes ?

Answer:
I would assume that you are talking about changing the MaxLength propertyof several text box controls? If so, the easiest way to do this is to openthe forms in a word processor like Word or WordPad to replace all theinstances where the length is 5 to 7 and all the others to 8. The Formfiles are simply text files that can be edited.
