The otherway is you can try the following

SELECT name, id
FROM   sysobjects
WHERE  type = 'U'

of course, by connecting to the master table of SQL server.

and if you are doing some kind of objectid storage within the VB application, you can utilize that too directly...by running the following query.....

SELECT object_name(192009989)

where object_name is the complimentary function.
