Hi,

I have an Access database that catalogues all of my music files. I can get it to export playlists into certain folders at the click of a button. What would be really good is if I could get the VBA code in Access to communicate with the SlimServer, probably through the CLI, so that the SliMP3 player automatically plays the playlist as soon as it has been exported/saved. Does anyone know how this can be done please.

TIA

Clive

It'd prolly be easier to interface the Access database with Perl. I know
that's not what you wanted to hear, but...
