Hi, guys...I'm looking for an application that will recurse through
VB.net and VB6 directory structures in VSS (I can also copy the files
locally), looking for comments such as:

' Developer : John Smith
' Create Date : 11/15/2005
' Description : This method will take an HTTP
' Request and serialize it down
' to an XML string. Used by
' PayloadBuilder in creating SOAP

and write them out to a text, doc, rtf, xls, or cvs file that I can
then edit and give back to the developers for update.

All I need included is the VB file name and the comments.

BTW...Richard...if you are out there...you know that I have
Document!X. However, I understand that for it to extract comments,
they need to be prefixed with ##. Any way of changing that to read
the code as I show above?

Any help out there?
