Using a 3rd party DLL in Excel.

I am trying to use a third party library (elanescale.dll for a scale for counting/inventory of  items from elane.net)

I am using Windows7 (x64) with Excel 2007.
I have used regsvr32 "C:\MyDLLs\ElaneScale.dll", I see the file in windows\system32 when I use explorer. However, when I try to add it to references in VBE, i cannot find it. I have tried to browse from the reference manager in windows\system32, but I cant see it.

When I late bind it, I can use the object browser and find the library and see the functions, but when I try to use it, I get a entry point not found (I am not real familiar with late binding)

What am I missing?

Thanks

Bruce

If you're using a 32 bits Office (or it could be related to VBA in general), you may need to use C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe (unregister the existing first).
