I hope I'm posting this in the right place. If not please direct me to the place I should post this question. I'm new to VB6, but I do know basic programming. I'm trying something that I have never done before and need a place to start.

I purchased this elect monitoring device (Current Cost) and it's mostly web based. Don't need to broadcast my elect useage all day long to the world. I have looked on line for a desktop app and can't find one. Therefore, I guess I should (I hope) make one myself. With all this in mind, how does one start off in reading the device from the comm port? I do have VB6 Pro installed on my computer.

Again, I thank all those that have answer.
