Hi !!
   U can use the functions present in DLL by specifying the
_declspec(dllimport) function in your application and link the DLL implicitly or explicitly.In implicit linking u have to link the lib in  u r project settings the lib file for the input.
For explicit linking u have to use LoadLibrary() and GetProcAddress() to call those functions.

There's an article in MSDN called 'DLLs for Beginners' (unfortunately no article ID), search for it and read it (it's in Technical Articels -> Visual Tools -> Visual C++ -> Visual C++ 4.0)...

hope that helps,
