I have an exe that is being called from SQL Server using the scheduler.  I need to be able to pass parameters into the exe.  

Ex.
c:\Inventory.exe "c:\ftp", "test.txt", etc.

I can only call a exe and pass command line parameters.

CJ_S is right, he gives an example of displaying the parameters, here is an example of how to do something with them:


Private Sub Form_Load()
  Dim aryParams()
  aryParams = Split(Command(),",")
  'will give
  'aryParams(0) = "c:\ftp"
  'aryParams(1) = "test.txt"
End Sub
