What to do in the event of the Modify Selection button being grey and un-clickable: Follow the steps up to clicking the button. Drag the About Microsoft Visual Basic bit onto the toolbar. This will allow you to click the modify selection button and change it to Show VB Credits. You can now click the button on the toolbar to see the show.

When you run this egg, a VBB?.tmp file turns up and stays there in the temporary folder. Looks like some kind of Pcode file and contained in this file are some names of synth sounds: such as "accoustic bass", "Strings", Guitar, Pad 1 (new age). it would be interesting to know why this file is produced and whether there is any more to this egg.

This egg works without Word, you can just access it from VB alone.

That tmp file plays music....you have to let the credits run through a second time...at least that's how it works if you actually use Visual Basic instead of VBA.

Hey sunil, I have VB (the real vb, $500) and I'm pretty sure I remember it coming with an example like that to give you some code to look at.. that might be the reason, to help people who have no idea what they're doing get a clue.
