Lpd,

In your Implementation section...

function BlipBlat: Integer; external 'DLLNAME' name 'DLLFUNCTIONNAME');

In the example above, "BlipBlat" is what YOU want the function to be known as to your program, the Integer is the datatype returned from the DLL, 'DLLNAME' is the actual name of the DLL and 'DLLFUNCTIONNAME' is the name of the function within the .DLL that you want to call. If there are several functions they will have to be declared seperately.

Be careful about calling 16 bit code in Win95 & NT.

Good luck with your project!
