Beginner needs help.

Hello, I am looking for some advice. I am a student and have been given the task of converting some programs that were written in Quick Basic 4.0 into a Visual Basic program. I have some experience with VB but no experience with GPIB. I am trying to write a simple application that will tell a Kiethley Model 196 DMM to take a reading of a resistor and display it in a textbox on my application. Could someone point me in some direction that will help me with this. Thanks very much.

The website that aro listed looks good, I would check that out.

Also, here is an example program in VB using GPIB. This example program demonstrates how to make 488.2 GPIB driver calls to communicate with a 488.2 instrument. Two modules must be added to the VB project, Niglobal and Vbib-32.

Hope this helps.
