I wanna learn how to use Visual Basic so which one is better. Here at work we have both and at first glance 6.0 looks easier to learn and .net looks confusing because it has alot of languages built into one.

From Micorsoft you get Visal Basic 2005 Express Edition for free. There are now many good lerning books on the market. VB 2005 introduce some new rules and logic so i would start here.

Visaul Basic Express is currently what I am learning to use for the record book. It is easy to understand especially if you have done programming with access. Plus it is free.

The only thing I know is how to run queries, make simple forms and tables with Access

I use Visual Basic 6 too make my MaxFB Utilities.  I have tried too use VB.net, but I don't like how they setup the language syntax in that version and it takes up a ton of resources compared too VB6.  VB6 has pretty much all the basics and there are a ton of VB Info Books all over the place.  Even many VB5 books can easily be used with VB6, and the lanuguage can handle all sorts of different things (even Game design if your willing too put the effort for it). 

I don't know much about VB 2005 Express.  I've only heard from a few people that its more like VB6 then VB.net, and if true, I think Microsoft made the right decision too make it similar too VB6.

The two languages are really very different. If you're looking for a career, .Net is probably what you want to learn. If you're looking to build some utilities or other things for this game, VB6 is probably better. It's a more mature language and will be able to do 99.999% of what you're probably wanting to do. Many things done in VB6 do not port well (or at all) to VB.net.

There is still a lot of VB6 code out there. I can't really speak for the rest of the world, but VB6 coders are still in strong demand here in BC.

This is a stupid question

I've downloaded the express version
but how do you make an .exe file

I'll probably find out looking thru the help files but so far I haven't been able to

I think I clicked build and build project (Don't remember exactly) at home and it did something but not sure what?

With VB.net, just running the build also makes the executable on disk. It's probably in a Binaries/Debug folder somewhere in your solution folder.

With VB6, just select File -> Make <projectname>.EXE from the drop menu.
