Comm Ports and Access 2000

P: n/a
Hello,

I would like to get some opinions on using the Comm Port with
Access 2000. We have a few jobs coming in that require us to interface
with a PLC via the Comm Port. My partner feels we should use a Visual
Basic Front End and the VB component as opposed to Access.

Has anyone had good luck interfacing to a Comm Port using
Access?

Thanks,
Hank Reed

Both environments work equally well, because you would use the same
component: mscomm.ocx.

You use the same OCX control whether it's in Access or VB.
