    If you would like to dial the phone numbers stored in a MS Access Form, you can use the attached code.

    In my opinion is easier than using 3CX Voip Client + TAPI + TAPI code in MS Access.

    It works only for Snom phones.

    The version I attached has been streamlined for clarity. The production version is much longer, with a few improvements:
    -Dialing only takes place if "Shift" is pressed, to prevent dialling by error.
    -IP adress of the user Snom phone is not hardcoded, but retrieved from a file.
    -Includes simple error handling.

    If somebody is interested I can post it also.

    'This function dials the number stored in the MS Access current field by Double Clicking it.
    'Make a Reference (in Visual Basic editor) to "Microsoft XML"
    'Edit your Access Forms, and write "=fgt_simple_dial()" in the Properties Windows of the Field, in the "On DoubleClick" Row

    Public Function fgt_simple_dial()

    Dim sURL As String 'URL that the Snom phone will be requested to show

    'Snom phones will dial automatically when asked to show a certain URL from the web interface...

    'define the URL to be opened..
    'Please note the IP adress of the Snom User's phone is hardcoded here...
    sURL = "http://" & "" & "/index.htm?number=" & "0" & Screen.ActiveControl.OldValue

    'Send http request to the phone..
    Dim HttpReq As New MSXML2.XMLHTTP40

    HttpReq.Open "GET", sURL, False

    End Function
