Hello,

we would like to integrate desktop search queries in one of our MSAccess applications through the visual basic interface. The SDK does not help, we cannot reference WDSQuery.dll, how could we do

Hello Stalwart,

To make sure I get you the correct answer, could you please let me know which version of WDS you are working with I'm assuming 2.6.5, but I want to be sure so I don't provide you with any inaccurate information.

Hello Jean-Claude,

If you are willing to use VB.net you can follow the instructions that one of our developers has posted in his blog here: http://brandonlive.com/2005/07/13/calling-the-wds-api-from-vb-net/

Are you looking to use VB.net or are you specifically wanting to use the VBA that is available in Access

hello,

I checked Brandon's solution, the problem is that with Access VB, it will not accept a reference to the DLL.

Stalwart -

Most of us are more familiar with VB.net than VBA. I've got a query outstanding to a couple people that are a bit more savvy with VBA. I hope to have something for you soon.

Stalwart -

Out of curiosity, have you installed the WDS SDK It contains WDSQuery.dll and can be found here:

http://addins.msn.com/support/WDSSDK.zip

I'd also recommend taking a look at this site for additional information. It doesn't contain VBA code, but it might get you started. Let me know if this helps. If not, I'll see if I can find any VBA buffs that might be able to help.

Hello,

This is the first I did, but you cannot add a reference to wdsquery.dll in Access VB
