    Hello, and welcome to AO,

    I can answer your question very simply: no chance whatsoever .

    To develop an application you need

    1. Business Analysis
    2. Business Process Engineering
    3. Systems Analysis
    4. Systems Design
    5. Database Analysis
    6. Database Design
    7. Programming
    8. Systems Testing
    9. Systems Documentation
    10. Technical Authorship
    11. Project Management

    To appreciate what I mean just Google for:

    "Structured design methodologies"
    "Systems development methodologies"
    "Applications development methodologies"
    "Project management methodologies"

    You mention a specific programming language so you should look for tutorials on that language, in other words a "bottom up" approach.

    Sure I have all the above skills, but it has taken over 30 years to acquire them

    Is this an oxymoron or what?!? Talk about a contradictio in terminus...

    Why don't you start with something simpler?

    Yeah, you really need to pick up the basics before you try to pick up complex projects otherwise you are just setting yourself up for failure. And tack "object oriented design", "multithreaded programming" and "network programming" onto the list that Nihil provided.

    Also something the others didn't mention,
    Why restrict yourselve to a dead language (VB)

    If you want to learn to program using VB as a start will propably hinder your development.. If you want to go proprietary (Microsoft), I'd advice C# over VB any day...
