Declaring an API function in VB

I've been trying to declare an API function, but keep getting an error. I've added the declaration statement inside the command1-click sub procedure, but get the following error; Compile error: Only comments may appear after End Sub, End Function,  or End Property.
I tried moving the declaration statement to "General Declarations" but get the following error; Compile error: constants, fexed-length strings, arrays... not allowed as public members of object models.
I've used the exact declaration statement out of the book I'm using.
Declare Function WNetAddConnection Lib "mpr.dll" Alias "WNetAddConnectionA" (ByVal lpszNetPath As String, ByVal lpszPassword As String, ByVal lpszLocalName As String) As Long
Can anybody tell me why I'm getting the errors, am i trying to declare in the incorrect place???
Thanks for any info anybody can provide.

Put the declaration to the top of your modul or form.
Incase of a form or class put the word private in front of it.
private Declare Function WNetAddConnection Lib "mpr.dll" Alias "WNetAddConnectionA" (ByVal lpszNetPath As String, ByVal lpszPassword As String, ByVal lpszLocalName As String) As Long
