I've only just started programming but really need to use a tlb for one of the projects i am working on.

The question is if i used the following declaration in Visual Basic

Dim iAcc as nfdataclient.IAccess

how would i perform the same declaration in C++.

I have imported (#import) the tlb into the program are there any other steps that are required to make it accessible?

I tend to use #import with the options no_namespace and named_guids

That way I don't need to mess with the namespaces (only really - I think - useful when you have the same interface in several different libraries)

to access your interface you can then use the smart pointers - in your case this interface could be

IAccessPtr ptrAccess;

and you then create it

ptrAccess.CreateInstance(CLSID_???);

the #import statement creeates 2 files in your output directory called .tli and .tlh and are always worth a look to see what has been created.
