Visual Basic is a powerful and easy to learn programming language that has been around for years. With Microsoft newest version 6.0, Visual Basic has really "grown up" and been extended to improve its ability to interact with the Win32 API used by Windows NT/2000. VBA (VB for Applications) and VB Scripting will also creates new possibilities for customization of NT, Office 2000, Outlook, and other Microsoft products. An Administrator who understands VB well can create his own custom applications to finally make NT work the way he/she wants it to.
