Hi Charlotte

I know. I mostly had the UI in mind which is a challenge on its own.

Trust me, Gustav, you still have work to do, especially if the data is
passed between regional formats.  SQL syntax still requires US format
for dates and numbers.

Hi Paul

You may wish to dive into the .Net framework. It has all the mechanics
for localization somewhere - I have yet to find out how, but it seems
like the data are kept in XML files.

For example, the native login components for web apps are localized.

To all,

We have a visual basic 6.0 FE, connecting to a SQL Server 2000 database
which all works perfectly well.  However we are moving towards putting
our Belgium & Netherlands offices onto the system.  What I need to know
is how to make my labels/controls/reports etc appear in the local
languages, I would assume this is no easy task but if someone could
point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.

Thanks in advance for any help on this.
