    Pass values to C++ dll and return result

    I can create a simple dll in C++ and call it from a VB app ok. But can you pass values/strings to the C++ dll and have it return the function?

    I want to open a db and search selected fields using VB as the GUI with the dll doing the work.

    I am not familiar with VB. Yes, it is possible given that the data type that the DLL returns is compatible with the VB process.
