There is no built in way to do it, but you can write a procedure(a pretty comlicated one) that will parse string commands, and turn then into VB code:

Sub Execute(Command as string, Args as string)
  Dim S1, S2 as string
 If Command = "Name" then
  S1 = Left(Args, instr(args, " "))
  S2 = Right(Args, len(args)-instr(args, " "))
  Name S1 as S2
 End if
 'And so on for every command you wish to implement
   
End Sub

You could check out the new Microsoft Scripting Control, it's on the Microsoft site (www.microsoft.com).
It's very easy to implement VBScripting or JScript in your own program! CHECK IT OUT!
