CDR Retrieval From PABX
Hi, anyone can show me how do i actually retrieve call detail records from PABX via TCP/IP or serial port? Can't seem to get any headstart on this anywhere.

Caller Id Thru Pabx

the network is like this: cti phone --> pabx --> server --> client

I want to get the callerid on the client computer thru the pabx. So mscom is no option. Displaying the caller-id on the server using tapi or thru direct connection to the pabx is!

Has anyone any information about this?

Currently i'm using pimphony on the clients systems which works great, but i *need* to use this capabilities in my vb app. Any information about using the distributed ocx's and dll's on the clients machine would be appreciated too! They can be referenced, but there are so many, and it's difficult to make a start here.

Get Data From PABX
hi everyone, i don't know where i start and don't know if i'm right with this post. but here is my concern about getting data from PABX (AVAYA). coz i want to make a program that creates a report from all calls connected in this PABX...

i already asked this before and the advice is to create an application that will listen to PABX and receive data from it... then this gives up confused in my mind on how to do this. co'z you know PABX has a lots of ports, i think ours has almost 100 ports.

any help really appreciated.

Parsing Data From PABX

Am im writing a call logging system and I am putting data from the PABX
a string. Sample data is like this:

 218 0 0646671 11:11 00:00:46
 ATN-1 0 091920643 11:13 00:00:10
 ATN-1 0 091920643 11:13 00:00:10
 218 0 0648149 11:12 00:00:52
 ATN-1 0 091920643 11:13 00:00:08
 ATN-1 0 091920643 11:14 00:00:12
 ATN-1 0 091920643 11:12 00:02:02
 218 0 0646671 11:11 00:00:08
 217 0 091264355 11:11 00:00:16

Where first column is the extension, 3rd column is the dialled number,
is the time of call, 5th is the duration. How do I parse this and put
in a database with the relevant fields?

*consider that the dialled number column is of variable length. How do I
all lines in the database?

Getting Data From A PABX System Using Mscomm Control
hi people.
i'm a newbie in using the mscomm control in vb6. i don't have much experience in programming either. but i have a new project to create. here are the conditions:
there is already an existing pabx system. the said system generates data like answered calls, dropped calls and transferred calls. it has its own software that receives and generates the data. it transfers the data to the computer through the serial port.

now, my project is to get the data, generated by the pabx from the serial port and generate queries and printable reports (ex: Operator 1 - 20 calls    20 answered calls     0 dropped calls; something like that) i already did some research in the net for some sample codes and programs, hoping to find something similar to my problem. i tried the simplest of them, like getting the data from the serial and display it in a text box. (ex: text1.text = MSComm1.input) The codes worked well. But what confuses me is that, the text displayed in the textbox goes like this : üüý=z‚ÿüüýýüüýýüüýý<z‚üýýüüý. but data that should be displayed is this: 01/19 11:56 00:01:41 T7 001 8259805 236 T 123.

do you have any idea why this happens? and, do you have any idea how to diplay the data right?
the project should be done asap. pls help.

New To VB Programming
I have read through the forums and have most of my app working, except the important part. Here is what my simple tool does:

DriveListBox - works
DIRListBox - Works, with error checking
FileListBox - works, lists all files in the selecetd DIR
TextBox - not really sure how to get it to work, I want the file selected in the FileListBox to be displayed in the TextBox. The files selected will always be .csv files that can normally be open in notepad.

Exit Button - works

Send file CommanButton- a button to send the selected file in the FileListBox to another directory on the local C: Drive. I'm still working on this one.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank Garrett

VB Programming
Hey, I've gotten the excel into a program where a student inputs the courses they want to choose for school and excel checks if those courses are there. But, i was wondering how, if you typed 8 courses in 8 text boxes, you would program it to choose the suitable time periods those courses can be in, and just for a check print those multiple time periods in seperate text boxes.

for example
If the first course u pick is only available for periods A,B,C,D,E
If the second course u pick is only available for periods C,E,G,H
etc. How would u get all the combinations for that.

Programming To The VBE In VBA
Hi everyone,

I am currently working with a program that has VBA. This program is on a piece of equipment that is used to measure electronics components. It has WIN98 installed on it. Anyway, my question:

This program does have an Application Object. Unfortunatly, it does not expose VBE (Visual Basic Editor) methods/propertys. So my attempts to write code to the VBE have been unsuccessfull.

I can set references to

PHP Code:


but no 'VBE' object exsists in the program itself, so setting

PHP Code:


results in an error

I recently bought a book written by MSPress entitled "Advanced Microsoft Visual Basic 6". On chapter in this book talks about subclassing. For instance writing a function to replace the MsgBox function. It also talks about Subclassing VB objects, like the app object. Now seeing as how I would like to do this in VBA, it will be the Application object instead.

Anybody have any ideas how this Subclass might be coded?

I would like to use code such as this in my project. It exports all VB Code modules in a VBA project. This code works for MS Excel 2000, but the app I am working with doesn't have

PHP Code:


The code is from

Sub ExportAllVBA()
Dim VBComp As VBIDE.VBComponent
Dim Sfx As String

For Each VBComp In ActiveWorkbook.VBProject.VBComponents
Select Case VBComp.Type
Case vbext_ct_ClassModule, vbext_ct_Document
Sfx = ".cls"
Case vbext_ct_MSForm
Sfx = ".frm"
Case vbext_ct_StdModule
Sfx = ".bas"
Case Else
Sfx = ""
End Select
If Sfx <> "" Then
VBComp.Export Filename:=ActiveWorkbook.Path & "" & VBComp.Name & Sfx
End If
Next VBComp
End Sub
This is a major obstacle. I ultimitly would like to be able to deploy code changes remotly. Getting acces to the VBE would be a major step in the Right Direction.
Any help,thoughts,ideas?
Many Thanks,

Programming Against The VBE

I usually need to load a number of class modules to my new VBA projects and it's quite a pain to do it by hand. I was thinking about writing some code to automate this, but I've tried many times to no avail.

My main source of information has been:

However, I can't get to work what they suggest there.

I'm using Word XP / 2003. Is it feasible what I intend to do? I know I can't code a VBE add-in, but a simple procedure would do.

Hi guys,

I will be having a serious test next week and a tip from the teacher is this;

How to control if a bank account number is a valid account number?

For example, here in Belgium, a normal account number is in this for:
XXX.XXXXXXX.XX (eg; 063_3853560_97)

here is the tip:

Make a form to fill in a name, an amout and an accountnumber. Check the Accountnumber .The sum of the ten first numbers devided by 97, take the remainder. This remainder must be equal to the last 2 numbers of the account number. If the remainder is zero, then the last 2 numbers of the accountnumber should be 97.

I don't really get this tip. Could anyone put it down in codes for me please???

Thanks in advance.

Programming ?
New- problem:
My Applcation has a field AssetLabel. It is non unique as an Asset may have various SubAssets. On entering an AssetLabelNumber the application must do a search for that number. On finding a match of the entered number it should assume that the entered AssetLabel is that of an SubAsset. A SubAsset Number (lowestpossible) is then allocated to that item. Any ideas to solve this using VB? - No code Neccesary !
