Most of our VB6 migration so far have been console based apps, or ones
that literally only had a handful of buttons so haven't had to delve
into "Forms" migration too much. But one thing to bear in mind is if you
used the old shortcut to a field via an "&" in the label description is
not the same.
You need to add a separate TextLabel field and put e.g. "<u>P</u>review"
in the Text of the control to get the visual of an underlined "P" in the
text of "Preview" and then on the form do something like
Public Sub Form_KeyRelease()
Dim inTest01 As Integer
inTest01 = Key.Code
If Key.Alt Then
Select Case inTest01
' do stuff
' do stuff
inTest01 = inTest01
As people have alluded to (or forthrightly said) will depend on the
structure of your old code and I am not casting any aspersions!
We always had "DIM" at top of routines and used Option Explicit and a
certain amount of consistent structure.
Most of our pain with the code I think you have already encountered
arrays () vs  and double vs float.
Some more pain was in converting some jet/access mdb usage. When it was
read-only we used ODBC+mdbtools otherwise we have converted to sqlite.
There is certainly some benefit if the code works and you have a number
of people familiar with it to migrate not start from scratch.
