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!!!!


Public Function SaveFileFromRes(vntResourceID As Variant, sType As String, sFileName As String) As Boolean

On Error GoTo SaveFileFromRes_Err

    SaveFileFromRes = True
   
    'Load Binary Data from Resource file
    bytImage = LoadResData(vntResourceID, sType)
   
    'Get Free File Handle
    iFileNum = FreeFile
   
    'Open the file and save the data
    Open sFileName For Binary As iFileNum
        Put #iFileNum, , bytImage
    Close iFileNum
   
    Exit Function
   
SaveFileFromRes_Err:
