I'm trying to write a VB6 project that uses mqax200.dll.  I have sample code from IBM that looks very solid, but the VB6 project won't run.  The variable declarations work fine, but I get an "automation error" when I try to run the project.  I have the mqax200.dll on the reference list.  I assume something else needs to be on my reference list, but what???  Thanks in advance for your help.
Private Sub Main()
 
 
 
    Dim qMgr As MQQueueManager
 
    Dim mqSess As New MQSession
 
    
 
    Dim inputMsg As New MQMessage
 
    Dim inputOptions As New MQGetMessageOptions
 
    Dim inputQueue As MQQueue

    Dim outputQueue As MQQueue
