Is there such a thing as a connection lead between a piece of equipment that had a vga connector and a tablet that only has a usb connector please?

You do not say what this piece of equipment is. There certainly is a usb to vga lead for attaching a separate monitor to a laptop for example - here.

I want to get a surface pro but will have to connect it to an existing projector that has a15 pin connector, the same that used to be for older printers. Thanks for your response. I'm glad there is a suitable lead.

CanI add a further question to this? I was looking at these leads on ebay and asked one of the sellers a question about it being suitable for plugging in a projector lead and was told that it would transfer data but not video. Is that correct because sometimes my presentations do have video clips.

"...and was told that it would transfer data but not video"

A VGA port is for the transfer of the video signal to a monitor or, in your case, a projector. However, although there is a USB/VGA cable available, you need to be sure that it will work without the installation of drivers/software which would normally be written for "Windows".

...or does the Surface Pro actually run the desktop version of Windows 8?
