Have you ever needed to run a line of code that is represented by a string variable from the VB6 IDE, like the Microsoft Access Eval() function allows? Frustrated because you wish there were something like a CallByName that could be used for functions in standard modules? Do you just wish that you could "run a string" without having to distribute the Windows Scripting Host? Well, just download the module basExecString to get this functionality. The same code works in VBE.DLL hosts like Office 97 Word and Excel, and in VB5's IDE as well (with nothing but a change of name for which .dll to call!).
