  • Hi Zaffar

    What's rpc?

    Certainly, there's nothing built into VBA that "knows" anything about socket programming. You might need some kind of third-party DLL that can provide this functionality. Or possibly you could create your own (managed code) COM DLL to provide the functionality, then access it through vba?

  • Sorry, no, I'm not at all familiar with the technology you want to use.
