Adding ability to make calls through Microsoft Access / VBA

We have a Microsoft Access / VBA application and was wondering if it would be possible to make calls, record those calls and store connection times etc via an API.

I have no experience doing VBA development. RingCentral provides industry-standard Restful API. So as long as your code can invoke Restful API, it is possible. Please post detailed questions when you have them.

I also don't have experience with VBA, but here is some regular VBScript I wrote a while back to send a fax with the RingCentral REST API which might help.
