using VB in PP


How can I use forms in PP?
I always get a fail message if I try to show a form.

Can I use Class Modules and Modules in PP?
I have to develop an application where the system should write/read MultiProperties from/to the OPC (AC800M).
Does it make sense to solve it about Class Modules? or are there better possibilities?

I have a MSDE - DB (little SQL) running with the system, where I store the values for the orders. Are there some tools, which available in the PP (for the SQL - Code) helps me for the application?

Many Thanks

the new version of the Parameter Manager stores the parameters in MSDE and makes them available as OPC properties. You can ask for more info and a demo-version.
