How do I bring up WordPad?

Dumb question, I'm sure.
How do I call WordPad with a text file to view/edit ?
I just want to slip the filename to wordpad and have it open up the file so the
user can view and edit it.

jgore,

Try the following:

Shell "c:\program files\accessories\wordpad.exe c:\myfile.txt", vbNormalFocus
