How to use VBA to send and receive SMS messages

Has anyone been able to use VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) to send and receive SMS? I've tried the code posted in a response in this forum, but can't get past getting an access token. No matter what I try, I get the error "Client authentication is required", error code OAU-123. I would be glad to pay for some consulting time with anyone who can help me.

I'm afraid that was not at all useful. I have already searched for VBA in the forum. I only found one potentially useful response, which included a VBA code example, but as I said before, I cannot get it to work. And the link you provided assumed that you already had a way to retrieve your access token, which is what I am stuck on. Still looking for help!
