     'You can add up-to more then 4096 .wav files to play a .wav like: p12on.wav, g7off.wav, n14panleft.wav
        File = vParm1 + vParm2

        'Not using vParm4 and vParm5 and vReserved
        'Out.AppendText(vParm4 & vbCrLf & vParm5 & vbCrLf & vReserved)

    End Sub :P

 :o I use p12on for my alarm - to play On The Road Again - rename On The Road Again.wav to p12on.wav
