 Controlling a dos app from vb

I need to programmatically control an old dos app from vb and read the
screen to extract data from it (it's an ancient turbo basic app with
unrecognizable data file formats). I'm having trouble getting screen
characters into vb and sending keystrokes (SendKeys doesn't work). Can
anyone help?
