Interaction with other applications : LUSENET : MW Software's Visual BASIC Descusion System : One Thread

I'm trying to have my VB app send data to another application to process that data. Right now I'm using the sendkeys statement. My problem is that the processing can take up to a few minutes and using the sendkeys and appactivate statements will not allow the user to work on other things while the processing is taking place. I don't really know API that well and was wondering if someone can help me with some coding. Also, by using the API will I be able to do the processing from VB to the other application in the background while allowing the users to continue working on other things on their pc?

I'd appreciate any help anyone can give.
