Sorry, I thought by "refactoring" you meant upgrading (and possibly
improving) an existing VB program with the intention of moving it to
VB.Net. You did say "I believe the idea is to clean it up with a view
to moving to VB.NET later". "Believing" is a poor substitute for a
specific brief and a high level understanding of the requirement. You
really don't want to waste several hundred man-hours based on a hunch.
I think you're miles off the point of decision about a specific tool
or implementation method. Can you explain where you'd like to be with
this, what "refactoring" is, and why "refactoring" is needed?
Sorry, this is possibly getting OT. Moderator, is there another ng that you
