As developers, we are not limited to the functions provided by the VBA language. In addition, we can call the functions that are part of the Windows operating system. 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

1. To call Windows API functions, you must first declare the functions and required type structures.

2. This video covers the steps necessary to declare Windows API functions

3. Declare the related type structures and variables

4. Then call the functions from a module.

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
