In a Windows XP Pro environment, my system uses a mainframe emulator in a window in which a scanning application is running. The data populating the mainframe app comes from various instruments, scales, barcode scanners, etc.. The data inputs are captured by a winwedge type RS232 data aquisition software.

When all the data is processed correctly, the mainframe application sends an "operation completed" message and creates an exclamation system event associated with a specific sound to inform the user.
My goal is to create a MS Access application that would use the Exclamation system event to validate writing the barcode that was just read to a database without further querying the mainframe, creating a local database. I only want to write the barcode when the mainframe application completed and therefore played the sound.
