Good suggestions emoreau

Assuming you already have a reference to CustomerID that you are passing to your dll:


If you made a reference to your activex dll do the following:

Dim cmVarName as new dllname.classname
Dim PersonName as string

PersonName=cmVarName.getname1(CustID)

msgbox "Welcome " & PersonName

If you have not made a reference in your project to your activex dll do the following

Dim cmVarName as object
Dim PersonName as string

set cmVarName=createobject("dllname.classname")

PersonName=cmVarName.getname1(custid)

msgbox "Welcome " & PersonName

But you must do what emoreau has suggested first.
