I have a program for our door entry system that is a DDE source and so can export user data for entry/exit times etc.

Im trying to write a VB program to take this data and store it to a mysql database.

The only problem is im not sure how to extract the data. Im trying to use LinkTopic , LinkMode etc in my code but it says that they are not functions, is this because I have only the express edition of VB or do i need to add a reference?

Also, the LinkTopic.. functions seem to be just for textbox's and the like, how can i stream the data off into just a variable to do with it what i will!
