Comms IO Control

P: n/a
I am busy writing an application (Access 2000) which requires control of a
comm port to interrogate the status of some equipment. Can anyone point me
in the right direction as far as controlling the comm port goes ..... any
good third party software out there that can be used as the interface.

Regards

Nigel

Saw this a while ago. Posted by rw*@robcom.com:

open the COMPORT:
OPEN "COM1: 9600,N,8,1,CS,RS" FOR RANDOM AS #1

....read data like this:
incoming$ = incoming$ & INPUT$(LOC(1), #1)

....and write data like this:
PRINT #1, <string-expression>;
