Capturing data from a serial port.

    We have a device that we are trying to capture a string of delimited text
    data from hooked to our computer's serial port. It is sending the data once
    per second. Does anyone know how to take control of this port and use the
    data in VBA?

    I think I can handle getting the data into a useable form once we have it
    from the port. Getting it from the port is what has me baffled...

    Thanks for your help.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
