When we discuss VB, you say that you're talking about new developments, when we're talking about VBA, suddenly that's no longer the case.

I'm just ensuring we have an understanding of the syntax we're using. When I talk about new developments I mean new stand-alone applications, but you don't write applications in VBA. I wanted to be clear that while you're correct that I wouldn't use VBA in a "new development" that isn't because VBA is not in use today but because you don't write apps in VBA. So I'm just being explicit about what I mean when I say "development". When you say development if you mean a project in general, then in that case I would say "yes", you would use VBA in a new development. The answer depends on the definition of "development", so I hope that clears that issue up.

VB as in "real" Visual Basic used for application development is very much still being used - even in new development projects.


Again I fear we're having issues with definitions here. When you say "VB" are you including "VB.net", as that makes it an entirely different argument. If by "VB" you mean "VB.net" then yes that is in use today, obviously, but that's not what we're talking about. We're talking about the VB family (VB, VB2, VB3, VB4, VB5 and VB6). If by "VB" you really do mean VB and you're claiming that because 0.00000000000000001% of new developments uses it means I can't say "it isn't in use" or "no-one uses it anymore" then that is simply a ridiculous argument.

As for the rest of your post I find it kind strange that you're telling me I can't claim no-one uses VB because 0.00000000000000001% of projects use it, and in the same post imply that VBA isn't in use because you...one single person....don't like it? Laugh | :laugh:
