Hi Zameer ,

Sorry , but I have not experimented with this add-in ; you will have to download and install it and see if it works. The site mentions that wireless modems are also compatible with their software.

Add-in will work fine.

Custom coding, I'd not recommend unless you are somewhat familiar with basics.

Link below with some modification will do what you are looking for.

As stated in linked thread (in previous post), you will need to know gateway for recipients' cell# to send SMS. By using Add-in (which usually contains library to handle this part) you can skirt the process of finding out the correct gateway.

Hello JAMIR,
"VB6 SMS API integration code"

Code:
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim DataToSend As String
    Dim objXML As Object
    Dim message As String
    Dim authKey As String
    Dim mobiles As String
    Dim sender As String
    Dim route As String
    Dim URL As String

'Set these variables
authKey = "Your auth key";

mobiles  = "9999999999";

'Sender ID,While using route4 sender id should be 6 characters long.
sender = "TESTIN"; 

' this url encode function may not work fully functional.

message = URLEncode(" Your message ")

'Define route
route = "default" 
' do not use https 
URL = "https://control.msg91.com/api/sendhttp.php?" 

Set objXML = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
objXML.Open "POST", URL , False
objXML.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
   
objXML.send "authkey=" + authKey + "&mobiles=" + mobiles + "&message=" + message + "&sender=" + sender + "&route=" + route

 If Len(objXML.responseText) > 0 Then
        MsgBox objXML.responseText
       
 End If
     
End Sub

Function URLEncode(ByVal Text As String) As String
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim acode As Integer
    Dim char As String
   
    URLEncode = Text
   
    For i = Len(URLEncode) To 1 Step -1
        acode = Asc(Mid$(URLEncode, i, 1))
        Select Case acode
            Case 48 To 57, 65 To 90, 97 To 122
                ' don't touch alphanumeric chars
            Case 32
                ' replace space with "+"
                Mid$(URLEncode, i, 1) = "+"
            Case Else
                ' replace punctuation chars with "%hex"
                URLEncode = Left$(URLEncode, i - 1) & "%" & Hex$(acode) & Mid$ _
                    (URLEncode, i + 1)
        End Select
    Next

Hii Teena it is great to find "VB6 SMS API integration code" here in this forum. Even I believe MSG91 is one of the best bulk SMS SPI provider in India

The problem is that I want to send an SMS with a click of a button as soon as an invoice has been made.

That's why I thought VBA would be a good option.

So basically through VBA, with a click of a button, I can send Mass SMS.
