Open with my application

I have two questions here that are related.
1. How do I set the file association so that files open in my app?
2. How do I get the name of the file in my application?  As in, when the user double clicks a file, how can I get the name of the file that they double clicked?

See:

Create file Associations
http://www.vb-world.net/tips/tip123.html 

You can get the filename passed by using the Command function Like this:

   Dim X As String
   X = Command
