    Smile Hi from a new old (in age) programmer

    My experience goes back to PDP-11 and VAX VMS Mainframes with some programming (pre OOP) programming. I haven't programmed for many a year but have decided to convert my wifes excel spreadsheet of clients into a windows application written in java.
    I look forward to all your guidance - windows seems so much more complicated than our old 'green' screens.
    Regards

    Hi Welcome to the forum.

    Like your comment about the old days I first learned BASIC on
    Acorn Computers in the late 1980's. I do remember the "Green Screen"
    computing age - nowadays that means Windows has crashed!!
