Data received using mscomm control in VB6 gives junk


Thread Starter



What I have done is to use a USB to RS232c converter to link my comp to the pressure gauge.

The required interface is:

data rate: 9600
data format: binary, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity bit, no handshake

Connections (sensor cable connector)
TxD (Transmit data) Pin 13
RxD (Receive data) Pin 14
GND Pin 5

So for my VB6 program, the setting I made in the mscomm property were:
baud rate: 9600
parity: N
data bits: 8
stop bits: 1
handhaking: comNone
inputmode: binary data

So what am I missing out over here??
