To get command line args you don't need to specify them under the make tab. The Command$ string will pass all arg's to your app so you can parse them and process them accordingly.For example:

Private Sub Form_Load()

If Command$ <> "" Then
    Dim arrArgs() As String, i As Integer
    arrArgs = Split(Command$, " ")
   
    For i = 0 To UBound(arrArgs)
        MsgBox arrArgs(i)
        If i = 0 Then MsgBox "UserName is " & arrArgs(i)
        If i = 1 Then MsgBox "Password is " & arrArgs(i)        
    Next i

End If
End Sub
