    Playing sound during macro (Excel 2000)

    I would like to play a sound when my macro is over, so I don't have to watch the screen. I can watch my co-workers break up. How does one "play" or "run" a sound file? If it's too complicated, I'll pass, but let's see. TYIA

    Re: Playing sound during macro (Excel 2000)

    Put the following declarations in a standard module:

    Declare Function PlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "PlaySoundA" _
    (ByVal lpszName As String, ByVal hModule As Long, ByVal dwFlags As Long) As Long

    Private Const SND_ASYNC = &H1 ' play asynchronously
    Private Const SND_FILENAME = &H20000 ' name is a file name

    and use them like this in your macro (substitute the path and file name of the sound file you want to play):

    PlaySound "C:WindowsMediaTada.wav", 0, SND_FILENAME Or SND_ASYNC
