Dear All;

I'm struggling to a call this function below to be used in an on click event in Ms Access, any idea here?

Public Function RecvAscii(dataBuf As String, ByVal maxLength As Integer) As Integer
    Dim count As Long
    Dim c As String * 12288
    Dim length As Integer
    dataBuf = ""
    While length < maxLength
        count = recv(socketId, c, 12288, 0)
        If count < 1 Then
            RecvAscii = RECV_ERROR
            dataBuf = Chr$(0)
            Exit Function
        End If
        If c = Chr$(10) Then
           dataBuf = dataBuf + Chr$(0)
           RecvAscii = NO_ERROR
           Exit Function
        End If
        length = length + count
        dataBuf = dataBuf + c
    RecvAscii = RECV_ERROR
End Function

I want to get the data from using above function so that once I get it then I have an opportunity to trim it to get only what I need because not all the data is required here:

The VBA below need to use the above function to polish up the needed data and that is where the problem is how to call that function and use its data into the cutting area

Private Sub CmdCread_Click()
Dim lngstatus As Long
Dim strData As String
Dim strFindata As String
Dim strDataAudit As String
' Read maximum bytes from TCP/IP Port.
lngstatus = RecvAscii(strData, 40000)
'After receiving all the data I want to trim so that I remain with the required data
strFindata = Mid(strData, 8)
strDataAudit = Chr(91) & (Left(strFindata, Len(strFindata) - 6278)) & Chr(34) & "}" & Chr(93)
