value to a perl script (vb access)

P: n/a
Hi!

When a user is in a MSAccess form, with the values of a registry, and
click on 'send this', I need to send the id. value of such registry to
a perl script with visual basic.

I can exec a perl script with shell(), but I dont really know how to
obtain the id value or any value with visual basic. Is there some
object structure representing the bd or the table? Is there some kind
of this_table.this_registry.id value on visual basic??

where can i find some answer if this is not the correct place?

Thanks, a lot.

Hi Julio,

I am not certain what you mean by "registry". If you mean the _record_
that the form is currently displaying, you can get the value of a field
displayed on the form using this syntax:
Me.Controls("XXX").Value
where XXX is the name of the control bound to the field. This can
usually be shortened to
Me!XXX
or
Me.XXX

Are you passing command line parameters or are you going to a website and to
a cgi-bin\pl file?
