Hi,

How do i  send field value from an Access table to an external application? Let’s say,
how to send [Recordings Subform].[Form]![TrackTitle] which has value of  
‘soldier of fortune.mp3’ to winamp instead ‘[Recordings Subform].[Form]![TrackTitle]’?

regards,
gorg

For MP3 Winamp applications, you can use SENDMESSAGE API to command the WINAMP application what to do, and what file to play.

Another examples, if you want to send a value of variables from Access to others Office applications or VB or VC try to establish DDE (Dynamic Data Exchange) between the applications so they can communicate each other.

PS: An example could be obtain use my e-mail at fujihome@hotmail.com.
Hope this help.
