I am trying to access the additional section properties using the CDBase.

I managed to get the CSECT routine to work but have trouble with CSECT_ADD.

Attached is the excel file with the macro. Would appreciate if someone can help.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Evanho,

Range("A" & StartRow & ":M5000").ClearContents
For CurSectAdd = StartSectNo To EndSectNo
    AddDataLen = Len(SectPropAdd)
    CDB_Return = sof_cdb_get(Index, 9, CurSectAdd, SectPropAdd.m_ID, AddDataLen, pos)
    If CDB_Return = 0 Then
        Range("A" & Counter + StartRow - 1) = CurSectAdd
        Range("B" & Counter + StartRow - 1) = SectPropAdd.m_YMIN
        Range("C" & Counter + StartRow - 1) = SectPropAdd.m_YMAX
        Range("D" & Counter + StartRow - 1) = SectPropAdd.m_ZMIN
        Range("E" & Counter + StartRow - 1) = SectPropAdd.m_ZMAX
        Counter = Counter + 1
   End If
Next CurSectAdd

For @Rec: 009/NR:4 SECT_ADD is the ID = 4 see below:
@0= ID [int] Identification = 4

Therefore you need to loop by using sof_cdb_get to end (return value = 2 -> end reached) and only if the SectPropAdd.m_ID = 4 store the values to your range.
You can do it this way:

'Read the values
Public Sub S_CSECT_ADD()
Dim datalen As Long
Dim cdbPath As String

    'Get the path from the cell
    cdbPath = "C:\examplePath\...\yourCDB.cdb"

    Index = sof_cdb_init(cdbPath, 99) 'connect to CDB, the variable cdbPath contains the path of the selected cdb
    If Index <= 0 Then
        MsgBox "Error, connection to the CDB failed"
        Exit Sub
    End If

    'Declare data
    Dim data As CSECT_ADD
    datalen = Len(data)
        Do While sof_cdb_get(Index, 9, 1, data, datalen, 1) < 2
            If data.m_ID = 4 Then                  'ID=4 for SECT_ADD
                MsgBox data.m_ID & " " & data.m_MRF & " " & data.m_AB & " " & data.m_AK & " " & data.m_AT   ' this is just an example
            End If
            datalen = Len(data)  ' this is also important to set the datalen before every sof_cdb_get

        ' Close CDB
        Call sof_cdb_close(0)
End Sub

Also when you read the data, call the sof_cdb_flush and at end it is necessary to close the CDB. Because CDB locks can occur.
P.S. I would suggest that you use .xlsm Excel extension (Excel Macro-Enabled Workbook file.) and not the .xls

Kind regards,
