I have a Declare Function (Below)that will automatically determine the usersname that is logged in and insert it into a field. And it works great up until I add the (Private WithEvents poSendMail As vbSendMail.clsSendMail
Dim TicketID As Longfunction) (Needed in order for my e-mail to work)
Each time I try and run my app adding both at the same time I get an error message :Compile error : Invalid Attribute in sub or function and WithEvents poSendMail As vbSendMail.clsSendMail gets highlighted.... However, if I remove the Declare Function it works again, but the email doesn't.... Any help would be appreciated. Using VS6 SP5, Win2K and Access2k ADO

(Declare Code)
Private Declare Function GetUserNameA Lib "advapi32.dll" _
    ( _
    ByVal lpbuffer As String, _
    nSize As Long _
    ) As Long
    Private Function GetUserName() As String
    Dim strName As String * 255
    GetUserNameA strName, 255
    GetUserName = Left$(strName, InStr(strName, Chr(0)) - 1)
End Function

(VBSendMail Code)
Private WithEvents poSendMail As vbSendMail.clsSendMail

You normally declared all your variables at the top and then write your procedures. Try this sequence:


Private Declare Function GetUserNameA Lib "advapi32.dll" _
    ( _
    ByVal lpbuffer As String, _
    nSize As Long _
    ) As Long

Private WithEvents poSendMail As vbSendMail.clsSendMail

Private Function GetUserName() As String
    Dim strName As String * 255
    GetUserNameA strName, 255
    GetUserName = Left$(strName, InStr(strName, Chr(0)) - 1)
End Function
