    Get the Professional edition. The learning edition is just that, it's for learning on. You can't create and distribute executable applications with it, although you can create apps to run on that machine only. As I recall, it doesn't come with all the activex controls either.

    Margaret,

    I'd suggest that you enrol in a VB course at a recognised CIT.

    2 reasons:
    1. You can learn some good quality VB at a reasonable rate (< $100 for a semester).
    2. You can then also qualify for an educational price for the software, which might be about 50% of the full price. HOWEVER, the educational edition does NOT entitle you to upgrades- but, by the time you upgrade, you will proabably be having your employer provide the software <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Thanks Geoff, this made me smile - you see, now that I'm my own employer, I'm doing just that: providing the software :-) (I just don't have oodles of money). I'm used to places with Enterprise edition lying about, but I've mostly worked just on the Word side of things, so I never really knew what came with what edition.

    I think Charlotte answered my question in another post when she pointed out you can't distribute executables with the Learning ed.

    Thanks all,
    Margaret Hassall

    VB Enterprise does not include C/C++ or Java, those are in the Visual Studio Enterprise Edition.
