Yes, and VB is a good choice for transformations that fall within its complexity and volume thresholds. VB is easy to use and the tools are readily available. However, when you end up with more than 2,000 lines of source code, you should realize that you're probably doing something in VB that you should be doing with a middleware tool or more robust language, ie, C++ or Java. If you expect to produce more than 10,000 lines of code it is no longer a question -- VB does not scale to that level. The good news in that case is that switching to a more appropriate tool will bring the line count back down to a managable level and increase performance as well.
