VB

Hope someone can help. I have a load of old VB6 apps which mainly used MS Access, a data class and ADO / ADO data controls.

What is the best approach in VB 2010, and can anyone point me at an article or some source code samples that can get me started. Apps are basically a front end to an MS Access DB with around 8 forms and some reporting mechanism.

Thanks in advance, Steve ;)

Have a look at this article
http://visualbasic.about.com/b/2011/01/24/converting-vb6-to-vb-net.htm[^]

Basically do a two-step process and make use of the now-defunct wizards to convert, then upgrade the .net version. Easiest is to download VS2008 Express
(I think that's the last one that has it)
You imply that the Access DB has some forms of it's own and some reporting - I'm sure that there a few access to VB conversion utilities around but I can't help much beyond that with that one
