Visual Basic programming

Visual Basic (VB) is an event driven programming language and associated development environment created by Microsoft. It is derived heavily from BASIC. VB enables Rapid Application Development (RAD) of graphical user interface (GUI) applications, easy access to databases using DAO, RDO, or ADO, and easy creation of ActiveX controls. A programmer can quickly put together an application using the components provided with Visual Basic itself.
