Simple Question....

Ok, this is an easy question.

Can somebody give me the code that will open a Microsoft Word (either 97 or 2000) file?

Yeah, and I also need a fragment that will open an Excel file of CSV format.
Sub Command1_Click ()
   Set oWDBasic = CreateObject("Word.Basic")
         oWDBasic.FileNew "C:\test.doc"

End Sub


Set wrd = CreateObject("Word.Application")

wrd.Documents.Open FileName:="C:\My Documents\Sales.doc"

Create a new doc


' When you finish, use the Quit method to close  the application, then release

set wrd = nothing

For excel

Dim xlApp As Object    ' Declare variable to hold the reference.
Set xlApp = CreateObject("excel.application")
xlApp.Visible = True

xlApp.Workbooks.Open filename:="LARGE.XLS"

' When you finish, use the Quit method to close  the application, then release

Set xlApp = Nothing
