    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.
