Parameters

ClassType

Optional Object. (You must specify either ClassType or FileName.) A string that contains the programmatic identifier for the object to be created. If ClassType is specified, FileName and Link are ignored.

Filename

Optional Object. (You must specify either ClassType or FileName.) A string that specifies the file to be used to create the OLE object.

Link
Type: System.Object

Optional Object. True to have the new OLE object based on FileName be linked to that file. If the object isn't linked, the object is created as a copy of the file. The default value is False.

DisplayAsIcon

Optional Object. True to display the new OLE object either as an icon or as its regular picture. If this argument is True, IconFileName and IconIndex can be used to specify an icon.

IconFileName

Optional Object. A string that specifies the file that contains the icon to be displayed. This argument is used only if DisplayAsIcon is True. If this argument isn't specified or the file contains no icons, the default icon for the OLE class is used

IconIndex
Type: System.Object

Optional Object. The number of the icon in the icon file. This is used only if DisplayAsIcon is True and IconFileName refers to a valid file that contains icons. If an icon with the given index number doesn't exist in the file specified by IconFileName, the first icon in the file is used.

IconLabel
