Object Create string of DLL classes

i like to create an object from a dll that i programmed in vb.

it should be done as

set object = Createobject("CLASSNAMESTRING_HERE")

with excel it can be done as

set object = Createobject("Excel.Application")

which string do i have to use in the dll and where do i enter this string ?

Hi, just did that yesterday:

1. In VB -> new project -> ActiveX DLL
2. Name the Project (lets say "MyLibrary")
3. Name the ClassModule (lets say "Functions") and set Instancing to MultiUse
4. Write your functions, Public Functions will be accessible (lets say Public MyFunction(Param))
5. Compile and Save your DLL (lets say to "C:\MyLibrary.dll")
6. Goto Start->Run-> "regsvr32 C:\MyLibrary.dll" (the DLL is registred in Windows no, to unregister run "regsvr32 -u C:\MyLibrary.dll")
7. Use it like:
Dim Object
Set Object = CreateObject("MyLibrary.Functions")
