Hi there,

I am writing an outlook macro in Visual Basic 6 and I apparently can't make a shared function. I've createrd a class module in my project and when I write in it, for example, the single line

Private shared function hello()

I get a compilation error just after pressing "Enter" :
   compilation Error :
   Expected : identifier

What's wrong with the word "shared" ?

Thx
