    But how would I go about saving something in VB. Like if I were to create a program that saved schedules etc, how would I save it?

    Well I was thinking about making a eating/lifting/nutrition stat program for the health etc forum and I want to be able to have them save it for use.

    Look into XML files. ADO (if you are using vs6) has methods to easily save a load recordsets from them. VB.NET is even better about saving that kind of information.

    I was taught on 6, so how much of a step is that?

    if you don't know the concepts of object oriented programming, it can be a big step.
