ok, I've looked at the tip files on this subject and added some code to my VBA, but I'm still getting an error message. Help!

Here is my code:

Private Declare Function PlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" _
Alias "PlaySoundA" (ByVal lpszName As String, _
ByVal hModule As Long, ByVal dwFlags As Long) As Long

Const SND_SYNC = &H0
Const SND_ASYNC = &H1
Const SND_FILENAME = &H20000

WAVFile = "J:\People\Aimee\dukes_horn - dont erase.wav"
Call PlaySound(WAVFile, 0&, SND_ASYNC Or SND_FILENAME)

MsgBox "You are done! Save now."
End Sub

I'm getting an error message that says "Compile Error: Only comments may appear after End Sub, End Function, or End Property."

Any ideas on what I have done wrong? I just want this one wav file to play when the macro is completed. The wav file is stored in a different folder out on the LAN.

Thanks! :)

Yes, thanks. If you read my message, you will note that I have already read all the other postings to this board regarding playing WAV files. This includes reading topic 59 and topic 87. Using those tip files has gotten me this far, but I still need to figure out what is causing my error.

You don't have a Sub procedure before your End Sub. Try something like this:

Code:
Private Declare Function PlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" _ 
Alias "PlaySoundA" (ByVal lpszName As String, _ 
ByVal hModule As Long, ByVal dwFlags As Long) As Long 

Sub Test()

Const SND_SYNC = &H0 
Const SND_ASYNC = &H1 
Const SND_FILENAME = &H20000 

WAVFile = "J:\People\Aimee\dukes_horn - dont erase.wav" 
Call PlaySound(WAVFile, 0&, SND_ASYNC Or SND_FILENAME) 

MsgBox "You are done! Save now." 
End Sub

depending on your settings, you may also want to omit the .wav extension.

That End Sub is for the entire routine. Do I really need to set up a separate Subroutine just for that little bit of code?

What do you mean by omit the .wav extension? Do you mean have this instead:

WAVFile = "J:\People\Aimee\dukes_horn - dont erase"
Call PlaySound(WAVFile, 0&, SND_ASYNC Or SND_FILENAME)

Excel highlights this section when I get the error msg:

Private Declare Function PlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" _
Alias "PlaySoundA" (ByVal lpszName As String, _
ByVal hModule As Long, ByVal dwFlags As Long) As Long

I added the code

Sub Test()

like Andrew suggested and I still get the same error message. :confused:
