Hi Tony,

I wrote an application for reading from and writing to MYOB in C# about two years ago.

Firstly you will need to obtain the MYOB ODBC driver.  Once you have that installed and have created a DSN pointing to your datafile then the rest is straight ADO.NET.  Use the System.Data.Odbc library.

Actually you didn't mention if you are using VB6 or .NET..?  Same principle applies for VB6.  To get the ODBC driver (from memory it comes as part of some sort of SDK) you will need to contact MYOB directly.

Cheers,
Jack (a different one)

Hi tvtech,
  Have you ruled out contacting the company? Or doing an export?

Jack,

Export is out, as the entire process must be performed in VB.

Thanks.

These guys appear to have figured it out, though it looks like it was in conjunction with MYOB.

Hi Jack (new one :-),

Thank you for that. They want AUD$895 for it. Bit steep for me. Shame they don't offer it for nix to encourage add-on products for theirs.

Thank you to the other people who offered help as well. This one was the closest.

Regards,
