I need to create a DLL that's callable from C, that executes database queries and returns results. The first tool I reached for was VB, and I found it easy to create a DLL, but when I view the DLL using dumpbin /exports, I don't see any functions.

So, my questions:
1) Is VB the right tool for the job? If not, (The ideal solution would be a 3rd-party DLL that will let me do database queries -- a friendly higher-level wrapper above ODBC. I've searched around and come up empty, but maybe I haven't looked in the right place).
2) If VB is the right tool for the job, how do I export a class method so that it's callable as a function in a legacy C environment?
1) The target environment is Mercury Loadrunner VUGen. It's able to import DLLs and make function calls, but the environment is (non-.NET) legacy C.
2) My development environment is MS Visual Studio 2008
