tuck,
I am not sure what your "string" is used for, but you can always put it to an INI file. In your exe, you read it from the INI file before anything else, and you can change the content of the INI file.

What i realy mean is to have command line switches for the compiled exe as i want to do different things depending on the switch entered in by a user..
Thanks

Use the variable command$ in your program, this will then hol the value passed on your command line, you don't need quotes around the string when using it.

deighton has just answer before me.

use the command$ function :

Dim sToExecute as string

sToExecute = Command$

Select sToExecute
    Case "Format":
        ' *** Format code
        ...........        
    Case "Delete":
        ' *** Delete code
        ...........        
    Case "Copy":
        ' *** Copy code
        ...........
