How to obtain Access 2002 start-up parameters

P: 69
All,

I'm not sure of the correct term to use in formulating my question, but using VB how do I obtain the parameters (command line switches) that were used when Access was started? In other words, what object and property in VB capture the paramters used when Access was launched (e.g. /WRKGRP or /X <macro name>)?

I've search the Access help files, but since I don't know the correct term to use I haven't been able to find anything.

Thanks,
Scott
