    I've been at it for a few hours now, but with no result.

    basically, what I want to do is this:

    For Each str_EntityName As String In str_TableNames
        Dim lst_Data as List(Of Object) = Context.GetAll(str_EntityName)

    Now, there is a function GetAll(Of XXXX), but in the loop I do not know the object type, only in a string.

    I've been looking at scope.GetOqlQuery and ExecuteQuery, but nothing helped so far (GetOqlQuery did not return anything, using "Extent")

    Could someone point me to the right direction?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Erik,

     You need to add a reference to the 'Telerik.OpenAccess.35.Extensions' and then you can use the extension method on the IObjectScope - 'ExtentByName'. ex - scope.ExtentByName(typeName). Note that the type name has to be the fullname (without assembly specification)

    Do get back in case you need further assistance.
