Access 2.0 to Visual Basic 5.0 Conversion Product

Question:
Is there a product to convert Microsoft Access 2.0 applications to Visual Basic 5.0 applications?

Answer:
Unfortunately, Access forms are significantly different than Visual Basic forms (in any version, not just Access 2.0) and there isn’t a way to export the forms into something that VB can deal with.

What most people in your situation end up doing is keeping the tables, relationships, and queries in Access and building a new interface using VB 5.0. In many cases, even though building the new UI is painful, it is much faster and cleaner in VB than it was in Access.
