Total Visual SourceBook Addresses the Needs of Developers and Enterprises

Discover why so many professional developers and organizations rave about the productivity enhancing features of Total Visual SourceBook!

Need source code? Tired of re-inventing the wheel? Tired of searching for code you know you've already written? Total Visual SourceBook has the answers to your problems.

I need source code that works in the real world

I've looked at other source code libraries and searched the web. I'm tired of wading through Computer Science 101 code, or outdated, untested code that has no standards.


Total Visual SourceBook contains over 125,000 lines of real world code--things like database and server programming, ADO, XML, Internet and Web Access, string handling--the things you need today in your projects. Plus, all the code is fully documented, tested and is ready to use. Just import the code into your project and call it.

All code in Total Visual SourceBook was written by full-time FMS developers with a decades of real-world Access/Office/VBA/VB6 project development.

I want complete integration with Visual Basic and Access/Office

I want a source code library that is available from within Visual Basic, Access, and Office. I don't want to have to import and export code through files or rely on the clipboard.


Total Visual SourceBook is completely integrated with your VBA/VB6 module editor's Integrated Development Environment (IDE) supporting the 32-bit versions of Access/Office 2013, 2010, 2007, 2003, 2002, and 2000 and Visual Basic 6.

Simply start Total Visual SourceBook from your add-ins menu and you have instant access to tons of useful code. Additionally, it can import code from your project directly into your local or shared Total Visual SourceBook repository.

If you are running the 64-bit version of Office/Access 2013 or 2010, you can still use Total Visual SourceBook 2013 by running it as a standalone Windows program, but not through the IDE.

I need code without complex dependencies

I don't want to spend hours tracking down dependencies just to use one procedure or module. 


Total Visual SourceBook is designed from the ground up to eliminate absolutely all inter-object dependencies. This means you can use any module or class from our extensive library without any dependencies whatsoever on other SourceBook code.

I need code that is fully documented and has examples

I don't have time to figure out someone else's code! Give me the documentation and examples I need to get up and running quickly.


Total Visual SourceBook provides complete reference material and numerous examples to make using our code super easy.

I need a central repository for my code

When I need to find code, I end up wasting too much time searching through projects. I want a central place where I can store all my code!


Total Visual SourceBook provides full repository features. Add your own procedures, modules, classes, or code snippets--directly from within your VB6 or Access/Office/VBA project. You can search code by keyword, description, and by creation/modification dates and by author. Never again waste time searching for code you know you've already written!

I need a multi-user repository so my entire team can share code

My entire programming team needs access to a central code repository that is multi-user ready.


Total Visual SourceBook's repository is multi-user ready. Connect your entire team to a shared code base and stop wasting time redoing work that someone else has probably already done. Developers can track code by creation and modification dates, by author, and mark code as read-only. Your code is kept completely separate from the built-in code so updates to the Total Visual SourceBook code never interferes with yours. The database can also be upsized to SQL Server locally or in the cloud using SQL Azure.

With our Source Code Exchange technology, teams can even share Total Visual SourceBook resources from remote or disconnected locations.

I need a cost-effective solution

I'm burning through too much development time writing code that I know already exists. Plus, trying to manage existing code takes too much time.


Total Visual SourceBook pays for itself the first week on the job. If not, return it for a prompt and courteous refund. And with our unlimited royalty-free redistribution rights for code, you can't find a better deal.
