I want to pass several arguments of different types to a linkexecute procedure in a client/server application. that means from the client to the server. This is because I want the server to take the arguments and store them in a database which is controlled by the server. How do I do this? Or what is the alternative?

Use DCOM. You can call Subs and Functions in your server classes as if they were local. Also, you can move the server to different machines without recompilation.

César.

PS- Ask me if DCOM is not familiar to you.

DCOM is an integral part of the Windows operating system (either NT or 98), and it stands for Distributed Component Object Model. It is a binary standard that specifies how different "objects" in different machines (or just in the same one) can communicate. You can create DCOM server with Visual Basic 5 or higher or Visual C++ 5 or higher, and as well create clients that use those clients. Once you have specified that your client will use a specific server, you call its functions and procedures as if they were normal functions in your program. The underlying DCOM system does the necessary work for the communication to take place. It's fast, secure, and easily configurable. Look for a good book on the topic at www.amazon.com or any other bookseller.

César.

I can't remember whether you could make an ActiveX DLL with Visual Basic 4. Do check it (I don't have version 4 anymore) and, if you can, the problem is solved. If you don't, you may consider upgrading to VB 5 or 6. It's worth the money if you can afford it.

Regards,
César.
