We are moving to SL 7 FP1 SP3 from 6.5.  In Customization Manager, GetModulePeriod does not work.  Is SELECT * FROM PCSetup is the only way to go?

I see many swimapi.dll calls in VBTools_VBA but not GetModulePeriod.  We also declared it as follows:

 Declare Function GetModulePeriod Lib "swimapi.dll" Alias "#116" (ByVal modnbr$) As String

 but this does not work.  It bombs out.  May be it has to do with the signature/declaration?

    yes.  I ultimately used the SQL to get it.  The funny thing is that GetModulePeriod works from the file server (local) but not from the workstation (shared n/w path) :-(

    Do you want the current period for the Project Controller module? if yes, then I would definitely use SQL. The SQL stmt is:

    Select CurrPerNbr From PCSetup.
