    VB script to launch a small program


    We have a CTI piece of software that can link in with our sql database called Net Connect.

    The software can link in with the database to retrieve information. When it retrieves it it can popup an exe file.

    I am wondering if it is easy to display the contacts of the field values that the contact has into a small form ran from an executable.

    The program net connect can launch the exe file and pass the parameters to it to display in a field.

    What I do not have any experience of it to create a basic vba form / exe that will display this?
    Best Regards,

    VBA can talk to SQL directly so you could retrieve the information into Word or Excel.
    What are you trying to do with the data?

    cheers, Paul
