What version of VB are you using?

There's an article (#89) that you can download that should help:

using 6.0

Hi Robban, in VB express you might do it this way depending on the display

Serialport1.Write(22 & "Hello")иии 'Turn the display on cursor off no blink and send string
Serialport1.Write(148 & "World")и 'Move cursor line 1 position 0 and send string

in VB 6.0 you would probably substitute Serialport1 with Mscomm1

EDIT: if the data is going via a Stamp especially P16 then we need a rethink.
