Uargh. In cases like this bookmarks (Ctrl-B) are very handy to jump
around in the code.

Yes! If you are ok with the fact that you have to run it under Linux in
future, Gambas is great!

I have ported a large VBA project to Gambas that was about the same
size. I could reuse a lot of code in Gambas. Naturally i had to go
through every module and hit F5 thousands of times, but the fact alone
that you can copy/paste the VB(A) code to Gambas, run it with F5 and
Gambas tells you what to change is worth its weight in gold.

Alles Gute
