I have a similar problem. I must make a small 34,000 line application 
in FB3 run in a Windows environment for a restaurant chain. RB looks 
very awkward to me after I all these years with QB and then FB. I am 
assuming VB is the easier path for me to make this conversion. I too 
would have interest in your FB to VB converter.
