Adding .NET dll as reference to VB6

I have a VB6 program and would like to use methods of a DLL in this program.  But this is .NET DLL.
Can I add a .NET dll as reference to my VB6 program? If yes, can you please guide me how to do it.
Thanks

Yes you can
When creating the DLL in .NET set the property of the project "Register for COM InterOp" to True
it is a checkbox in the property pages

Then you can access it in VB6 by adding a reference to it as you do with other DLLs

For detailed info see

Or do it need to wirte any code within my vb6 to access the functionalities of referenced .net dll

You'll need to create an object of the class in the DLL and call the methods of course...
