Play VB/HTML .Wav (Wave) Files

Here is some code you can use to play .Wav files in your database:
Option Compare Database
Option Explicit

Public MusicPlay As Long

Public Const SND_SYNC = &H0

Public Const SND_NODEFAULT = &H2
Declare Function SndPlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" _
                (ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long
Play your .Wav files using the "MusicPlay" variable:
Function PlayFile()


End Function
I incorporated some background voices on a website recently, so I'll add the small piece of code I used to play .Wav's on the webpages too...

This script goes before the BODY tags:
<script type="text/javascript">
function EvalSound(soundobj) {
  var thissound=document.getElementById(soundobj);

<embed src="FULL PATH AND EXTENSION OF FILE" autostart=false loop="false" 
width=0 height=0 id="sound1" enablejavascript="true">
This is the start of the BODY tag:
<body onLoad="EvalSound('sound1');"
