Dialing through the KDTeleTools ocx control

Posted on 2011-10-11

Hi - I need to change the TAPI ocx control that we have been using for some time on our Access database.  

It was suggested that I use the KD TeleTools software, which looks ideal.  However, I am having real difficulty getting it to work in Access, and to make matters worse, I need to go on-site to test it (quite a trek).  

The examples supplied (VB5/6 and .NET) should be enough, but I cannot open the VB5/6 examples as I only have VB 2010 Express installed on my machine, and the .net version seems quite different.

It simply needs to dial the supplied number at this stage (although I will need a few other TAPI features once I have the basics out of the way).  Any help would be massivly appreciated - as always.

      Yes, VB.Net is quite different from VB6.   However most VB6 examples can be opened with a text editor and then copied/pasted into Access with little or no changes.

      Give that a shot.  If you still find you can't do it, post a URL to the site and what you want and I'll download it and send it to you as a text file (I have VB6 here).

    And as noted before, their tech support is pretty good, or at least it was in the past.
