Basically it depends how did you hook up things (hardware), give more details on hardware. and how you want software to work.
where is your problem? writing a gui application or building a controller part.

things to consider:
1) available interface port from your hardware
2) is there an available software dlls that can readily used or called (if not then you have to code one)

i dont have vb6 right now so maybe you can try with your excel, as macro. to give you an idea on the GUI events:

open excel, tools, macro, visual basic editor.

to show the control toolbars, go to View, toolbars, control toolbars. there you can see the text box and button controls.
create 1 textbox and 1 button on your excel.

double click the button, it will bring you to the code view. paste the ff codes:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
'TextBox1.Text - this is your command
'put your code here, whatever you wanna do with the command string you type on the textbox

End Sub


be sure to set your security to medium (tools, macro, security). close excel. next time you open, select enable macro.
