I wanted to create a dll in VC6 that receives a value from VB and assigns it to function in VC Dll that transmit that value to parallel port(outport()). In fact I wanted to know the steps to write a dll in VC and call in VB.

Writing a DLL is easy. You can use a wizard that will do it for you (DLL Wizard). Just remember to define each function in the
DEF file (myproject.def, it's simple) and to use the correct calling convention (so that the VB program and the VC dll will speak in the 'same language').

Good luck,

Ron.
