It´s good, but my problem it´s the follow,

I have created a dll in vb that I´m gonna use in excel.

I declare at the top
private declare function xxxxx

but it said me that it couldn´t find that dll.

make sure to register the dll by typing this in the command prompt:

regsvr32 "path/to/your/dll"

Check your registry for the names of the components that you registered.

(this is assuming you registered your dll using regsvr32.exe)

Go to your registry (Start->Run. Type in regedit) and navigate to this location


If you registered your DLL corectly it will be in this list.  If you locate it then make sure the name specified here is the name you are using in your app.
