Read up on the Express Edition of Microsoft Visual Studio. It may be
able to do that.

Officially, maybe...if you have the Office 2000 (or later) Developer's
Edition, and only within certain parameters, as I understand it.

I also seem to remember reading about some hack several years ago that would
get you there, but I doubt if I could find it again.

Your best bet is to use VB6 or some other COM-compliant language.

VB6 is really all you need.

VB6 can be used to create a dll from VB.
gcc is free and can be used to create a dll from C.

VB and C are programming languages. Neither are part of Office.

Microsoft Visual Studio is a package that includes VB.

No, unfortunately not. And since it's no longer being sold, you might have
some difficulty finding it. Since you have the Developer's Edition of XP,
though, you should be able to produce at least SOME DLL's. I've never used
Office to do so, though, so I'm afraid you're on your own for figuring out
what you can & can't do. (Or at least, somebody else would have to help you.)
