CreateObject application names?

Can anyone tell me where I can find a list of application names to use when using the CreateObject method?  (ie "Access.Application" or "AUTOCAD.Application")  I'm attempting to create an instance of Bentley's MicroStation.

Thanks,
Sekans

You can go to VB's View/Object brower to see all the objects.
Yoy can go to project/Refrence to set all the available reference.

DQ, this is not what I'm looking for.  I need to know where I can find the exact string to use in the CreateObject method.

ex:
CreateObject("Access.Application")

where can I find something that tells me I should use the string "Access.Application"?

Thanks,
Sekans

It will be there in Windows Registry. Look for ProgID in Registry Editor (Run REGEDIT.EXE or REGEDT32.EXE).

The string you are looking for will be there in VersionIndependentProgID or if such an entry does not exist then in ProgID.
