At the ver beginning of the code, to declare general info about the program:
' Progname
' By whoever
' Date
' General description
' Technechalities (such as files and there directorys)
' Any other required info

When using comments in the code, use these hints:

NEVER do this:
' Checks if A = 1

At the beginningof all subs, write a short description of what they do

In complicated sections, explain them in English so as to make it so other programmers understand it better

Finally, use comments so as to inseart options other coders can use, instead of the ones alrady in the code. Ie:
A = B * C
'Or use this code:
'A = C * B

I know, it is a lousy example, but it convies the message well.
