Here's a good one. I need to launch a .NET assembly from the VBA Macro in an Excel 2003 Workbook. I need to do this to take advantage of the additional abilities of the .NET framework when dealing with XML.

Are you trying to get returns from the .Net Code and use it's functions/methods?

Or do you want it to run it unattended?

Solution was to go to a link with no commentary on whether the "lenordiste" had actually gotten the example to work. That is the only reason for the "partially" grade on "completeness"
