I am a psychologist. I have been using several Qbasic 4.5 programs I wrote to generate ascii text files to be edited in a word processor. Each module CHAINs to another until all data has been entered. Data is either text or numerical, and I have tables which look up percentiles, standard scores, etc..
I would like to change my program to work in a Windows environment, with text and numerical input, as well as buttons, check boxes, etc.. I have Microsoft Visual Basic 5.0 but I have found its code to be completely alien. Designing the objects is pretty simple, but I am unable to go beyond that.
I have heard about Powerbasic 7.0, but I really don't want to invest in more software, only to find my skills are not sufficient to do what I want. I do want to be able to go in and alter code as needed, however, so maybe this program will be more similar to Qbasic code.
