Total Visual SourceBook™ 2003 Now Shipping

New Version of Leading Professional Code Library for Access/Office/VB Available

VIENNA, VA – April 19, 2005 — FMS announced the release of Total Visual SourceBook 2003, the best-selling professional source code library and code repository for Access/Office and Visual Basic. The new version supports Microsoft Access/Office 2003, 2002, 2000, and Visual Basic 6.0. With more than 85,000 lines of code, Total Visual SourceBook provides the most extensive professional source code library available for VB/VBA developers. 

Total Visual SourceBook provides an extensive library of well-tested and documented original source code that can be inserted directly into applications and used royalty-free. Over 160 classes and modules are available. The source code is organized in our exclusive Code Explorer which makes it easy to view and find the code needed. Integrated with the VB/VBA development environment, Total Visual SourceBook inserts code directly into the current project. It also features a code repository to store and manage your own code.

Total Visual SourceBook includes Enterprise-ready features to allow an entire development team to share a central code library. Developers can even lock their code so others cannot modify it. New or junior developers easily and safely leverage the knowledge and work of senior team members. The latest version also includes a new feature so users can replace the error handling in all the FMS procedures with their own custom routines.

“SourceBook is a well-designed code repository filled with solid code that you'll definitely reuse in your other projects,” says Rama Ramachandran, Visual Studio Magazine Buyer's Guide reviewer. “What makes SourceBook valuable is not only the quality of the code, but the ability to add your own code routines, share them with your coworkers, and annotate existing code routines with your comments.” 

“Total Visual SourceBook is not a jumble of code collected from newsgroups or articles,” said Luke Chung, FMS president and founder. “All the code is carefully designed and written by our team of Microsoft MVPs specifically for this product with special care to make sure the programming styles and documentation are consistent. This allows developers to easily use our code in their own applications. By using a couple modules or classes, this product easily pays for itself. Total Visual SourceBook is simply the ultimate code library for VB and VBA developers.”

Licensing and Pricing

Total Visual SourceBook is licensed on a per developer basis and includes a royalty-free license for the developer to include its code in their applications. A single license is $399, and a 5-Pack is $1,299. Larger quantity discounts are available.

Total Visual SourceBook can be purchased directly from FMS, corporate resellers, and international distributors. All FMS products include a 30-day money back guarantee.
