    I'm not sure how you created your vb program.

    But you should do the following.

    1) Connect (can either connect to the database through DI API, connect to SAP Client called UI API, if you want both you can use single sign on method)

    2) Then have System.Windows.Forms.Application.Run(), this is saying let my program run With the client.

    What you must remember is that when you working with the SAP GUI, you need your app to run and then receive "events" from SAP and then perform an action. An event is like when you click on a button and so on.

    So for the program you want to create you should be doing the following.


    -add menu to SAP menu.

    - Have System.Windows.Forms.Application.Run(),

    -Then you should have menu event code to say when menu item clicked on open a form.

    Hope this helps 😊

    Use B1DE. This is a collection of wizards that integrates with Visual Studio .NET

    and generates for you addons and setup code. You can get code in VB.NET or


    You can download B1DE and other tools under Business One SDK Tools here

    on SDN. It comes with source code and documentation.
