Hi.

I get Type-Declaration character does not match declared data type when the following line of code tries to execute:

Txt_Log.Text = Txt_Log.Text & Time$ & " - Com Port " & ComPort & " Opened."

I tried just copying this line to an empty program and it works fine... So what else could be causing the problem?

Thanks

All looks pretty standard... Maybe try CStr(Time) instead of Time$ though I don't see why that'd be a problem...

Time is a reserved word, are you using it as a variable name?
