wav file for Msgbox

I have a field indexed not to allow duplicates.  I would like to prompt a MsgBox to call a wav file instead of the generic message given by MS Access.  Could someone help me with this?

Thanks,

IPT

This code will allow you play any .wav sound through code .

However, if all you want to do is change the standard sounds for Question, Exclamation etc you can do this through Control Panel/Settings in the Sounds option.

This must go at the top of a module in the genral declarations section:
                                             
       Declare Function apisndPlaySound Lib "winmm" Alias _
       "sndPlaySoundA" (ByVal filename As String, ByVal snd_async _
       As Long) As Long

    '================================================================
    ' The following function PlaySound calls the Windows API function; call it from anywhere
    'Usage  PlaySound("C:\path to file.wav")
     ' example  ?playsound("D:\winnt\media\tada.wav")

 
      Function PlaySound(msound)
         Dim XX%
         XX% = apisndPlaySound(msound, 1) ' play mmwave sound
         If XX% = 0 Then MsgBox "The Sound Did Not Play!"
      End Function
