How can I create a new "UNNAMED" Group using VB

Set grpObj = myDoc.Groups.Add("new")
the argument is not optional using this function.

I have an ARX app that allows you to (among *lots* of other things) set a
group to anonymous once it's been created. It's still in beta but it seems
stable so far. If you'd be willing to help me test it, I'll email you a copy

what version of acad are you using?
i tried your method in the past and vba returned errors.
possibly autodesk corrected this bug in 2000i?

You can get a copy of my AcadX server at the
URL below, and use the Application object's
SetGroupName() method:

SetGroupName(Group As AcadGroup, Name As String)

Sets the specified Group's name. If the group
is named, and the new name is "*", the group
becomes anonymous. If the group is already
anonymous, and the name is a valid group name,
then the group becomes named (non-anonymous).

I am using AutoCAD R14,
It would be a shame if Autodesk sees this as a bug
and removed from AutoCAD2000
