    Hi, I have a similar question as Pavan's.

    I have already downloaded MSComm32.OCX and registered it with Microsoft Access 2000. Now I have a problem with how to use it.

    Let me explain my situation. I am trying to retrieve SMDR data from the PaBX system. Instead of using Hyper Terminal, I would like the data to be shown in Access 2000 so that I can organise them in the way I want. However, I don't know much about programming or coding and is only starting to learn now.

    So I think a code or program is needed to show the data on Access right? Is it possible to provide me with the code that I can copy and paste it in?

    Thank you very much!

    Regards,
    Abel

    start here

    Then, here...

    I've used mscomm with VB6 several times, but, not with Access.
