After adding the reference to the FlexPro Object Library (e.g. via the type library flexpro.tlb found in the installation folder) one can access the object model. To get an application pointer, one can use the following code:

Dim app As FlexPro.Application
Set app = CreateObject("FlexPro.Application")

To attach to a already running instance GetObject(, “FlexPro.Application”) can be used instead.

To add a new project database, one can use

Dim oDatabase As FlexPro.Database
Set oDatabase = app.Databases.Add

Now one can start adding objects (like folders, formulas, datasets, diagrams, …) to its RootFolder and perform updates (to cause calculations). The database can then be saved and closed with the respective methods.
