See my answer to this question in the VB area.
basically, you need
void _declspec(DllExport) _stdcall CFunction(paramlist)
Also you need the DEF file:
LIBRARY
    dll-name
EXPORT
    CFunction

In VB then you declare it as
declare sub (or function) CFunction lib "Whatever.dll" (paramlist)

and call it from VB as any other VB function.

declare

First of all, on the C++ side you need to declare the function as extern "C" to dissable the name decoraton.  Like
extern "C" int F(int i)
{
 return i + 1;
}

You also need to declare the function on the VB side so that the correct parameters are passed to VC.  I can't help you there.
