can't get my vb6 project to run with MQ

Posted on 2009-04-08
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
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 outputMsg As New MQMessage

    Dim outputQueue As MQQueue


    'Create a session, connect to Queue Manager


    Set qMgr = mqSess.AccessQueueManager("QMNT")



    'Open input and output queues


    Set inputQueue = qMgr.AccessQueue("AS400.To.NT", _

                                      MQOO_INPUT_AS_Q_DEF + _

                                      MQOO_FAIL_IF_QUIESCING + _



    Set outputQueue = qMgr.AccessQueue("NT.To.AS400", _

                                       MQOO_OUTPUT + _



    'Put the customer number into the output message


    outputMsg.CharacterSet = 37

    outputMsg.DataOffset = 0

    outputMsg.WriteString txtCustomerNumber



    'Send the customer number message


    outputQueue.Put outputMsg



    'Set the Get Message Options


    inputOptions.Options = MQGMO_WAIT + _



    inputOptions.WaitInterval = MQWI_UNLIMITED


    inputQueue.Get inputMsg, inputOptions




    'Get message data field values


    With inputMsg


        txtCustomerNumber = .ReadString(6)

        lblDataName = .ReadString(3) + _

                      " " + _



        If Not (Trim(lblDataName) = "NOTFOUND") Then

            lblDataCreditLimit = Format(.ReadString(4), "###0")

            lblDataBalanceDue = Format(CDec(.ReadString(6)) / 100, "###0.00")

            lblDataCreditDue = Format(CDec(.ReadString(6)) / 100, "###0.00")

        End If


    End With


End Sub
