I was wondering if it was possible to play sounds in VB once the form loaded or if a statement was met then a sound would play itself like a prompt or something. I don't know how to use sounds on VB so I really need help....

thanks so much to the person that will help me...

    Hi
    Try that:

    Private Declare Function sndPlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" (ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long

    Sub PlaySound(Optional strFile As String)
    Dim ret
    Const DEFAULT_FILE = "Utopia - Erreur.WAV"
    'Chimes.wav
    'chord.wav
    'ding.wav
    'notify.wav
    'recycle.wav
    'ringin.wav
    'tada.wav - We have a winner
    'Utopia - Erreur.WAV - Erreur
    If strFile = "" Then
    ret = sndPlaySound("C:winntmedia" & DEFAULT_FILE, 0)
    Else
    ret = sndPlaySound("C:winntmedia" & strFile, 0)
    End If
    End Sub
