Remember my Question on Killing a Shelled App...

Dim retval
    retval = Shell("c:\windows\telnet.exe", vbMaximizedFocus)
    '
    '
    'Process data
    '
    '
    AppActivate retval
    SendKeys "%{F4}", True

Well, it works find for Windows Programs, but te app I shell is in a DOS Box...

Would you know how to Kill a Shelled App that is in a Dos Box?

This worked:
  SendKeys "exit{ENTER}", True

To use SendKeys, just send the key sequence that performs the function you want.  In this case, in the Dos box, you would type 'exit' then press enter to close it.  That, then, it what SendKeys will send.
