PB .dlls are not "real" .dlls in that there are no entry points to call. 
You will need to find another way to access the PB code from VB.

Couldn't you wrap an NVO as a COM object?

Delphi dll
I'm developing a dll file in Delphi 7 in order to use it in a Powerbuilder 10.5 application. I get strange results in PB when i try to pass a string through a function or procedure. I've tried pchar, pwidechar, lpstr, lpctstr in D7 and string or REF string in PB, but nothing seems to be working properly. The function in D7 is quite simple, i just take a string for input, encode it and return an encoded string for output. In PB i get a lot of "squares" in my output string. There seems to be a problem reading (from PB) the memory address that is pointed out from D...

How can I write a DLL in PowerBuilder which exports functions to be called in C/C++ code?
Hi, all. I want to write some business logic functions in PowerBuilder which will be called in another c/c++ program. How can I do this? Thanks & Best Regards.

Calling external dll from PowerBuilder
Hi. Can anyone help us with this problem? We have a PowerBuilder (6.5) application which calls an external C dll passing it references to arrays of structures. We have noticed that there will be a 30 second delay immediately after PowerBuilder would call the C dll (between the PowerBuilder function call and entry into the C dll). Now we pass references to fixed (bouded) arrays of structures to the C dll. Upon further testing we discovered that if we reduce the array numbers (they are rather large) then there would be no gap - it would go in a flash. The million dollar question ...

Calling a Java function from PowerBuilder
Hi all, We need to call a Java function from within PowerBuilder. I realize PB 6.5 can generate Java code but how do we call the functions?

Andy Egleston Is it a running applet or application that can be listening for requests on a socket? You could use a socket OCX and communicate with it from PB that way.

External function call from Powerbuilder
Hi, I am having trouble in calling the function GetUsernameA() function from the Advapi32.dll. GetUsernameA(string lpBuffer, long lpnsize) The function requires a pointer to a string and pointer to a long as arguements. The PB equivalants to this are string and long. IF I call this function it returns only the size (lpnsize) and not the lpBuffer. Can somebody help me in this.
