1-How do i play an .avi file automatically?  When i use an OLE to put the avi in, it requires the user to double click on it, then click the play button.  I want it to automatically play, then open another form when it is finished.
2-How do you play .wav files in the background of a form.(As in the program is still running while the sound plays)
3-How in the heck do you let somone save multiple values into a file name that they decide with any extention(.txt, .wow, .dat are examples) that I want.  I know that its simple, but I am a simple freshman in High School and I need to know simple things.

TO PLAY MUSIC>>PUT THIS WITH YOUR GLOBALS>>>
Public Declare Function sndPlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" (ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long
THEN>>> when you want to play the sound...
call sndPlaySound("C:\PathName.wav",0)

TO PLAY AVI>> USE THE ActiveMovie Control and set it to autoplay.

To Allow them select extenstions.. use the CommonDialog Control. and do something like this,,,
  On Error GoTo ErrHappened
  CommonDialog1.Flags = cdlOFNHideReadOnly  
  CommonDialog1.Filter = "All Files (*.*)|*.*|Wow Files" & _
  "(*.wow)|*.wow|Batch Files (*.bat)|*.bat"  
  CommonDialog1.ShowSave  
Exit Sub  
ErrHandler:
'go here if the guy hit cancel
End Sub
