Well, it would be hard for me to know what's wrong without knowing what FAR,
PASCAL and __declspec are. I'd guess they're macros, but what they expand
to is unkown. This appears to be Windows stuff (and possibly OLD windows
stuff, given the FAR specifier), so you might ask in a windows newsgroup.
(Also, shouldn't there be a semi-colon at the end of that line?)

Is this a function declaration? If yes, where is the name of the function ?

This one must be very simple. I am trying to run an SQL Serv 7.0 stored proc from a VBA module in an Access 2000 app. This stored proc runs fine when I remove the parameters from the stored proc and from the CommandText string below, but when I run it as is I get the error SQL Serv Syntax Error or Access Violation on the "Execute" line. _ContactFetchLike 'Thom%' also works when I run it from the Query Analyser.

Hi, Currently, we are porting C++ applications from 32 bit to 64 bit on AIX platform. (The current version of AIX is 5.3 and xlC verison is 8.0). We are able to compile the applications by including the -q64 option in xlC compiler. And we are able to link all these libraries to one of the main applications and generate an executable. SKLoader.
