I don't think it's worth much, but one feature of the VB6 screen is that one can space items evenly, which does not seem to be possible in Access.

The advantages of using VB6.0 vs Access are too many to list up here.
Access is great for single use, local desktop usage, a beginner to intermidiate programmer. But when it comes to flexibilty, advance programming techniques, Larger applications, multi user, network server scenerios, n-tier applications, creating DLLs and usage of classes, etc, etc, ACCESS is just too far lacking, tends to lead the programmer into bad programming techniques and habits, and so forth.

It depends on what you want to do. But in contrary to what some people may think, outside of reports, (in which Access is great for, but can be compesanted in VB with the use on something like Crystal reports), I can create even a simple and better application just as about as fast using VB - however, this is not true for beginners.
I still program using one or the other - it really matters what the application will be used for (Where, size, users, etc).

Hi,

I am very new on the 2 softwares Access vs VB all I can say is simple as I view it ACCESS is much more got to do with a database type of application while the VB is much more on a customize program side where you can do a lot of things evencontrolling ACCESS itself inside VB programs. If you want me to choose I will choose VB. Hope this add up an idea.

Hi,

Simply put, Visual Basic (any version) is a programming language, Access (any version) is a database.

Visual Basic can be used to create applications that may or may not use databases. Access is a database that may be customized to have certain program functionalities using limited VB-like code that is VBA.

Programs created in VB are stand-alone (exe format). Translated programs created in Access still need the MS Access program/database in order to run.

You have much more flexibility in terms of programming if done in Visual Basic. VBA code (being a macro) is limited.

Cheers,
ALAS
