In your startup Subroutine (Sub Main or Form_Load) you need to process the built in variable Command or Command$ (either one does the same thing).  This will pass all the command line parameters entered when that program started into the program.

Oops.  I guess I should tell you that it's just a string variable, so you can treat it like any other string variable.  For example, if you're expecting a Command line parameter of "jrf" then you can do this:

If Command = "jrf" Then
 'Do whatever....
End if


You can use multipule command line parameters by separating them with a comma (or whatever else you want, just as long as you remember what it is).  Just like this:

Dim x As Integer
Dim cmdOne As String
Dim cndTwo As String

x = InStr(Command, ",")
cmdOne = Left(Command, x - 1)
cmdTwo = Right(Command, x)
