Assuming you have a midi file stored in a resource under a CUSTOM folder then you would do the following:

    SaveFileFromRes 101, "CUSTOM", "C:\TEMPJ.MID"
    Me.MMControl1.filename = "C:\TEMPJ.MID"
    Me.MMControl1.DeviceType = "Sequencer"
    Me.MMControl1.Command = "open"
    Me.MMControl1.Command = "play"

Good Luck!!!!
