Is there a way to make a call from a windows form? The company i work for now uses S4B. I would like to have a button on a form and when the user clicks on the button it will take a phone number from a label or textbox and open there S4B client and place the call. If anyone could point me in the right direction will be a big help.

Jason, there are a small number of really helpful people in the forums, Richard is certainly one of them, pointing out the guidelines for responding to a question is probably not a good idea (he may have been involved in formulating them).
One of the most irritating things is that people asking questions do not do even the most basic research, a search being the first thing to be done when trying to solve a problem.
He showed great restraint by not calling you a lazy pillock or other derogatory names while pointing you to a google search.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
Oh no, I don't agree with anyone just on principle Too many people run straight here when a simple google search would answer their question. But they would rather have someone else make the effort for them.

In a vb.net 2012 vb.net desktop application that I am opening for the first time, I am getting the following error and warning message: Error 1 Resource file "My Project\Resources.resx" cannot be found. Warning 2 A custom tool 'VbMyResourcesResXFileCodeGenerator' is associated with file 'My Project\Resources.resx', but the output of the custom tool was not found in the project. You may try re-running the custom tool by right-clicking on the file in the Solution Explorer and choosing Run Custom Tool.
I tried to run the custom tool that was suggested in the warning message and that did not help. Thus can you tell me what I can do to get the Resources.resx file that is missing?
Is there a way that I can paste a screen print of what the visual studio ide is to this post so that you can see it?
You mentioned the following ,"If you can't find a copy of the file, then you'll have to add a new resource file, and re-create all of the resources."
There is no resource file. Thus can you tell me how to create the resource file and recreate all the resources? I do not know how to create a resource file and I do not know how to re-create all of the resources. How can I tell what resources need to be added?
If you have no idea what was in the resources to begin with, there is very little in the code that's going to tell you. Resources are strings, files, icons, images, data, ... that your app uses. There is really no way for you to "figure out" what was in there.
The bottom line is you MUST find the missing file(s).
I thought this would work fine, loading the entire database table into a list, and then use Linq to grab the matches into another list.
I've never used where and or, this is the first time plus I have contains, thought I got it right.
Dim customers As List(Of model_customer_index) = everything.Where(Function(a) a.FCUSTNO.Contains(pValue) Or a.FCOMPANY.Contains(pValue)).ToList()
That depends on where you're executing the query, and is one of the more annoying quirks of LINQ.
If you're querying an in-memory list, string comparisons are case-sensitive by default. You can either "normalize" the strings using ToUpper / ToLower(you should prefer upper-case[^], due to the "Turkish I" problem[^]), or you could use IndexOf and pass a case-insensitive StringComparison. (Annoyingly, there isn't an overload of Contains which takes a StringComparison option.)
Passing a StringComparison option is preferable to changing the case, because it doesn't involve creating a new copy of the string.
If you're using a database, your query will use the collation[^] for the column you're querying. Most databases use a case-insensitive collation by default, so your query will be case-insensitive.
If you try to pass a StringComparison when you're querying a database, you'll get an exception telling you that the method can't be converted to a database query.
Not that this is a leaky abstraction or anything!
