Can't connect to Attachmate Terminal Control in Access VBA

Can't connect to Attachmate Terminal Control in Access VBA

Hello all,

First post here! I tried looking for solutions here in the archives but found nothing.

For the past months I have been writing VBA Access applications in combination with the Extra! teminal. This was always doen opening up an external Extra! Terminal window. No problems there.

But I discovered today that you can also open up a Attachmate Extra!terminal in a form in Access. I succesfully linked it up with the AS400 system and was over the moon and excited about the possibilities! But... I can't get my code to activate the screen.
I tried CreateObject("EXTRA.System") but that opens an external terminal session. How do I connect to the embedded session in a form?

Thanks in advance!

for a NUANCE!tongue
