I would like to access two DLLs from Visual Basic.  There are a very large number of functions to 'declare', so I'm looking for an automated solution - a program which reads header files, and generates a VB .BAS file.  Any suggestions?

As XXX said, a sample would be nice... A piece of that file that illustrates the exact syntax for your declarations, and where they're located in the .h file.

Try transformin dlls to ATL DLLS in c++. then you do not need to declare functions

IMHO, in this case the better way is don't declare these functions at all - call them by their names.
See my sample at http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.Asp?ID=1863
