I need to create a procedure in Access to read GPS data from COM4. I think that using the mscomm control offers the best chance of success, but I have never worked with it before. Can anyone point me in the right direction to start writing the code.

I'm just ranting, but I've been looking into this for a while, and I have found very little on the subject. Using MS-Access to store GPS data seems like a "no brainer", but there seems to be very little information on the subject. Is there a reason for this? All of the information that I have found refers to a third party software to act as a bridge between the GPS reciever and Access. I don't have a problem using a third party app, but I'd like to know if I'm going down the wrong path in thinking that Access and GPS should be a natural fit.
