Read the tuts in QB Express for now.

Soon I'm gonna put downloadable copies of all of the QB Express FB tutorials in that section...but I've been busy.

@ Mr Match: Gah! I hate those,... mine was from having a folder "x.t.r. GRAPHICS", after I changed it to "xtrGRAPHICS" it worked fine,... but you folder lacks .'s.... hmm.....

Try and move your .bas to My Documents, make a sub folder if you like, then see what happens....

e.i. All my files are in: "C:\My Documents\xtrGRAPHICS\Fb Files\" ... then I have "\Projects" ... for bigger programs,. and in there sub folders for each project.....

btw: why is your drive "D:\" ?? Ins't that the ZIP drive?

I've been seeing a lot of ignorance like that lately.. wonder why, must be some kind of widespread computer illiteracy virus..

A: and B: are reserved as diskette drives
After that comes your HARDDRIVES
Example, you have 3 HD's, you get:
C:, D:, E:
Then comes other perhepials, such as zip drives, CD-Roms etc, the order of those items vary..

Also, it is possible to change the order of your HD's, or even dump a CD inbetween two HD's

For example, i have:
Diskette: A:
HD: C:
HD: D:
HD: E:
HD: F:
CD: G:
CD: H:
CD: I:
CD: J:
CD: K:

I have windows 2000 installed on my F: drive, so, F: is my system HD, not the common C:

heh, the main reason its on my D: drive is that my D: drive has 59.3 gb left of free C:.....4.2..... :shock:
