hey all ,

I am quite new to Visual Studio environment can anyone tell me how to use Visual Basic code (macro) inside VC++.I am trying to program a standalone inplace of  a excel based application, the excel version currently has a few visual basic macros which do all the required computations. I want to use these macros from inside my VC++ code, how do I do it.  I think it can be done through a DLL ? but not sure how. Any solution/suggestions (a bit detailed  Pls am new to visual studio :) ). I am currently working on VC++.NET and code is in VB 6.0 .

Thanks in advance,
AM

Hi,
    What u can do is depending on type of code impelemented in Excel VBA, try to create a corresponding ActiveX DLL/EXE.
In this DLL/EXE, based on the code create functions which will implement the Excel VBA code. Now u can reference this DLL/EXE in VC environment and create and object and directly reference the required function.

    If u need any further clarifications please state so.

hi VBS,

Thanks for the reply but I didn't understand it completly. You mean to say that I need to create a DLL in VC which will call the VBA functions or Create a DLL in VB with all the functions ? After I create the DLL I can just instantiate the object and use the functions right ? could u please explain the above points.

Thanks

What i meant to say was create all the DLL in VB, this is because the VBA code can be directly translated to VB due to similar syntax. Now u can reference this DLL in VC.
IF this is not clear I could provide some more details.
