Why not indeed...

You will need to reference the MQAX200.dll in Tools->References

This code assumes the queue manager lives on the same machine, or you have the MQ Client software with appropriate configuration. If not, you'll need to set IP number/port and channel information.

Dim Session As MQSession
Dim QueueManager As MQQueueManager
Dim Queue As MQQueue

Set Session = New MQSession
Set QueueManager = New MQQueueManager

QueueManager.Name="QueueManagerName"
QueueManager.Connect

Set Queue = QueueManager.AccessQueue(“QueueName”, MQOO_OUTPUT)


There is more detail provided in the IBM redbook at:

Hope that helps,

Keith.
