Visual Basic 101

FREE Upgrade Coming Soon!

2020 UPDATE: I am currently in the process of upgrading my Visual Basic lessons for Visual Studio 2019. I expect to have them finished very soon. When they are released, you will get a FREE upgrade if you have purchased any of my VB lessons after August 1st, 2020. In the mean time, if you're currently using newer versions of VB, give these lessons a try. You may learn a few things. I'll be honest, the interface for Visual Studio has changed SIGNIFICANTLY since these videos were recorded. They will be hard to follow. The concepts are the same, and a lot of the VB programming language is pretty much the same. You can still learn how to program from these lessons, but it will be hard to follow along because the interface is completely different from Visual Basic 6 which is what these were recorded in. But don't worry... updated videos are coming soon!

If you want to learn how to program in Visual Basic, this is the course for you. This course is designed for students who have never programmed before. However, even if you have been using Visual Basic for some time, you will benefit from the good, solid fundamentals that this course teaches - it's a great refresher for experienced developers as well. We have also had students come back and tell us that they picked up a few tips and tricks, even though they've been programming for years with Visual Basic. Programming basics, VB interface, forms, subroutines, MsgBox, command buttons, captions, build a calculator

Hi Richard, I have recently done some courses in Access with you, and it was very helpful. But, as most people work in Excel, so I'm very keen to learn VB now. I have learned programming in GW Basic 30 years ago but has not really used it after I completed the course. I want to learn programming in Excel so that my colleagues are not scared as when I was trying to create a database in Access. Is VB the best language to work with in Excel? Read More...

Hi Rick,
I am a newbie in VB and Visual studio. i would like to recreate this "my first program". I have Visual Studio Pro 2012 on my machine. But the options are too many when i choose to create a new project. I cant even find VB6 :). can i understand it as the same as the option to create a "window forms application"? Then i see there is an option to choose the .NET framework. i see from 2.0 up to 4.5. Considering that my program will run on Windows 7, which framework is advisable? Read More...
