This book is dedicated to Professor Chuck Koontz and the Computer Science department at Anderson University. Thanks for introducing me to Visual Basic over ten years ago and for your support and encouragement! Although time and distance separates us, the assistance you provided me at the beginning of my career is always remembered and appreciated.

I would like to offer a special thanks to Emilie Herman and Chris Webb and the other staff at Wiley who played such a key role in making this book a reality. I could not have done this without you!
