Accessing COM ports from Access 2016

Is it possible to communicate with COM ports from VBA in Access 2016? If so, can someone point me to some online documentation or examples for doing so?

Thanks in advance.

No reason why not.   I just wrote up this article:

https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/31440/Supporting-serial-communication-devices-in-Microsoft-Access-without-the-use-of-ActiveX-controls.html

 Couple references in there to the MSKB about serial communications in general.
