These functions are part of the Windows API (Application Programming Interface). Using the Windows API, you can extend the functionality of Microsoft Access.

Video Steps

Hi TechMommy,

I am one of your remote students from 1990's and had purchased your Access 2.0 videos (I guess it was published by key-stone). This is my first opportunity to thank you the wonderful work you had done on those videos.

Back to this "Windows API" project. Is it possible to have the code files to save time typing them?

Thank you,

Mike
