Good Morning and welcome to the first instalment in this ActiveX control tutorial.

I'm your amazingly geeky host Karl Moore — and it's my job to ensure your ride on the Visual Basic train to ActiveX control land is an exciting one. Well, maybe just a slight-amusing one. Hmm, perhaps just a ride.

Whatever Visual Basic programming experience you may have, learning about the wonderful world of ActiveX could improve your career, your bank balance and your love life*.
