Shell32.dll -- What's in there?

P: n/a
Ron

Last week I saw in a code snippet where you can use the shell32.dll to
use code that will shut down Windows from an Access application. I
tried this and this worked nicely.

My question:
How did the author know about this originally? Where can I obtain a
listing of all of the things that you can do with the SHELL32.DLL file?
Instead of using someone's code snippet, once I find something in there
I want to use, how do I set the code up to use that particular piece I
find interesting?

Thanks.
