    I have one Visual Basic application that uses FarPoint Spread 3.0(OLEDB) Grid Control. I need to upgrade the existing VB application in to VB.NET application.

    If I migrate the existing application VB.net will support this version of this control or not.

    Could you please help on this... Thanks In advance.

    Spread 3 for COM should work with .Net but there are a few APIs which are not going to be supported because of limited COM interop support.Also the performance when using COM version of spread with .Net will be slower because an interop layer is created for every call into the COM control.

    I would suggest you to upgrade  to<i> Spread for .Ne</i>t in order to get a full fledge .Net support while working in .Net environment.

    Hi Deepak,

    Thanks your valuable information.

    Currently migration what we are planning to do is through Visual Basic Wizard. According to your mail assuming that once migration is done it will work with .NET Environment with COM interop support but some of    the  API won't support .

    However could you please share more about Spread for .NET (is there any new version? ) so that I can get the licence of new for .NET environment.(if something goes wrong after the migration)

    Thanks Saneesh
