[dba-VB] .net vbebug window

I have discovered how to simulate the debug window.  You have to set a
breakpoint that will be executed, run your program until the breakpoint is
executed, then at that point you can manipulate objects (call public
functions etc) in the debug window in a similar manner to VBA.  It isn't as
convenient but it works.

In vba you can simply open the debug window and execute a public function.

In a word, yes.

You can run the program in a debug mode, and during the initial compile if
there are any errors it will let you know what they are and WHERE they are.
You can also control such things as how variables are displayed, whether
certain warnings are presented, how breakpoints are set, etc.
