    Clipper .. the purpose of this forum is NOT for us to do your homework for you, rather it is a place for you to ask questions on something that you are having trouble understanding or getting the proper results from.
    If anyone here did your homework for you ... what did you learn from it ... and what value is an A of F grade to us from an instructor we have no interaction with?

    Without doing your homework, I'll tell you this:

    To get the farenheit value, multiply the centigrade value by 1.8 and then add 32.

    Knowing that, you should be able to write the code easily. All you need to do is to create a formula for converting farenheit to Celsius, and write a few lines of code to handle the input/output. That should be an easy task.

    To Convert Fahrenheit To Celsius: C = ( ( ( F - 32 ) / 9 ) * 5 )
    To Convert Celsius To Fahrenheit: F = ( ( ( C * 9 ) / 5 ) + 32 )

    But those are the formulas..

    Thanks for the help so far this is what I have come up with

    'var declaration
    Dim a, b As Double
    Dim c As String

    Private Sub Command1_Click()
    b = (a * 1.8) + 32
    Label1.Caption = "Howdy " + c + " the temperature is " & b
    End Sub
    Private Sub Command2_Click()
    a = 0
    b = 0
    c = ""
    Label1.Caption = ""
    Text1.Text = ""
    Text2.Text = ""
    End Sub

    think this should work but not sure. still confused about reading in from the temp device so any help would be appreciated
