Naim,

ALE is specifically mean for SAP-SAP communication and NOT for the purpose that you have explained here.

In your case, from VB you can try calling a RFC function and get the required details and this can happen in real time. However, the call has to be triggered by the VB application.

You can look at these links to help you with the calls.
