ummmmmm, I've been calling DLL functions since Access Basic / MS
Access 2. What's to prevent you from declaring extern functions from the
A VBA 5 example from Access 97:
' Access the GetUserNameA function in advapi32.dll and call the function
Declare Function GetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "GetUserNameA"
(ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long
Call the function GenUserNameA and it returns a long . . .
Anybody (with stronger VB then I) have any thoughts?
