Learning more about API functions

Working with the Windows API functions can be tricky. Many programming reference books list the declarations for common API calls and often provide examples. Usually, you can simply copy the declarations and use the functions without really understanding the details. In reality (at least the reality that I've seen), most Excel programmers take a cook-book approach to API functions. The Internet has hundreds of examples that can be copied and pasted and that work quite reliably.

CD- The companion CD-ROM includes a file named % , which is a text file that

ROM contains Windows API declarations and constants. You can open this file with a text editor and copy the appropriate declarations to a VBA module.
