Does anyone know of a product that a developer would change per my definition for pay? I'm looking for a text editing software that's written in VB.

    Are you looking for something in the line of Microsoft word, or a little less robust like Note Tab Lite? There are probably a lot of free programs that are open source. What is the reason for the VB requirement? You mention "change per my definition for pay". What type of custom mods are you looking for?

    Once a change is recommended, the old and new string should be stored along with the applicable page number and line number in a separate file (perhaps called ERROR].  The error file s/b a standard word file which can be manually edited.  I intend to send such a file to others for their use.
    I wish to own the source code but am willing to consider paying some royalty for usage.  I can use this program about  100 times a month.
    I suggested VB since I understand how to make minor changes to the source code.  MSAccess could be used if it is more convenient. Word has a capability which I currently use by defining error words such a ca1 xx which reports a correction  of   comma after xx  but I have to manually type the page and line number and a tab before entering ca1 xx.  I would like such a change to be entered automatically as the line is scanned.

    There should be an ability to add entries into the provided dictionaries.  I would provide detailed changes to the developer such as:
    user specified location of  beginning page number, 
    preferred method of placing commas in a series of words followed by and.
    whether lines in the error files s/b double-spaced or not,
    addition of other dictionaries [still English] 
    when and how to use numerals instead of words 
    How to decide to use read instead of red [other similar like their and there]
    {I have a number of other changes to be programmed in and I
     cannot do them]

    If you are interested in coding this project, please provide a proposal stating what you would need to start.
    I would like progress reports which include some of your source code as you provide some of these features so that I may test them and provide feedback to you.
    I am 82 years old and have lost my ability to develop software so your efforts will be protected during this development process.  If we are successful in this endeavor we can both make money.
    Sincerely,

    P.S.  If we communicate via e-mail I can send you details as attachments.
