Custom source name in the windows event log

I'm using enterprise library's 4.1 Exception & Logging Application Blocks, how can i get a custom source name in the windows event log. When ever i am logging an error in windows event log , it gives the source name as Enterprise Library Logging.If i change the source name the the entry never appears? Any help appreciated!

Just to add some more info, all i'm doing is publishing a caught exception through the exception handling block as follows, where "ErrorPolicy" is the policy i've defined in the Enterprise Library Configuration tool.

Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.ExceptionHandling.ExceptionPolicy.HandleException(exception, "ErrorPolicy");

If you need further details of the configuration entries then i can publish!

Thanks for the response!

I've read through the article but it was posted in Aug 2003 & its for a much earlier build of enterprise library?!

Currently the 4.1 library uses the Enterprise Library Configuration tool to set the exception and logging policies & i'm trying to get those entries correct to change the source name?
