We don't have any resources for VBA in particular unfortunately.

 

In general, we recommend developers use one of the official SDKs, if possible, or if not, one of the community SDKs, or call the HTTPS endpoints directly. 

 

For example, to create a shared link for any file or folder, you would use the /2/sharing/create_shared_link_with_settings endpoint. If a shared link already exists, you would use /2/sharing/list_shared_links to retrieve it.

The API does offer the ability to create and retrieve shared links for files and folders, using the endpoints I linked to in my previous reply.

Please try using those and let us know if you run in to any issues.

I don't have a sample for VBA unfortunately. If you can't use an SDK/library, I recommend translating the curl examples in the documentation for whatever HTTP client you can use in your app.
