Acheiving Callback Functionality in Access 97 and Office 97
Bummed because VB5 and VB6 support AddressOf as a way to get to a pointer to a VBA function, when Access and the other Office 97 applications do not? Here is the sample file on how to get the same functionality in Access 97 and all Office 97 applications from an article I wrote with Ken Getz for the May, 1998, issue of Informant's Microsoft Office Developer. The CallBacks.xls sample is in Excel, but can be converted to any VBA/VBE supporting application. This article also appears in a truncated format in MSDN and has been in there the last few versions, but since I am offended by the parts that they did not include, I do not include the link here.
