Question 1: I am working on Lesson 5, Creating Menus for User Ease. I typed the code in exactly like the book said. However, when I run the program, I get a Compile error message, Variable not defined. What am I doing wrong?

Solution 1: The Response variable needs to be defined. Therefore, put this along with the other variable declarations:

Dim Response As Integer

You could also do this, I believe, without ever using the Response variable:

MsgBox(Msg, Style, Title)

By just putting MsgBox() function call on a line by itself. By using Response, however, you can test the return value of MsgBox() if needed. You'll learn more about return values later in the book.

Question 2: Where is the Happy.bmp file?

Solution 2: The "happy.bmp" file is included on the Microsoft Visual Basic CD-ROM. It is not included on the CD-ROM that came with the book.
