If you have a char buffer ( i.e. char global[1000] ) declared and storing data in a VC++ 5.0 Dll, can Visual Basic (I have V5.0) Read that variable to get its contents?

Goto www.worldofatl.com. They have could examples of how to communicate between VB and C++.
StructVB is a good sample.

To answer this question. No VB has no way to access global data directly. You have to put it in a function call and copy it either as string or as binary data.
