As an experiment, I want to create a c#/.Net DLL that I can reference from MS Access VBA.  So far, I have used two examples - but each one gives me the following error when I try to add it as a refernce:

"Can't add a reference to the specified file".

Here is one of the examples that I used:

Adding the reference would be ideal, but I could also use late binding.  However, I just need to find a starting point and figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
