Sure, no problem. Just call Microsoft and ask them for their source code. ;)

Microsoft don't generally release the source code of their software, though there are a few exceptions.

You could probably learn something by looking at Open Source Software, such as those on sourceforge.net. However, be warned that a lot of Open Source Software is not well written in terms of good programming practices (though some of it is.)

If you're new to programming, it would be better to find a good programming "recipe" book that takes you through a few sample applications and explains the code. I've been programming for over 20 years and it still takes me many days to understand the source code for an Open Source application.

yep I got me some book already it just that I want to create me some program base on what I know so far about VB so I can retain the information that I learn like the the loop, array, and the such.
