How can I execute a Batch routine from VBA ?

I 've got a small batch routine which sends
a desired file to a ftp-server.

I wrote a macro to export my excel sheet to
a comma seperated csv file and now I want to
transfer the csv file via ftp-batch directly to a webserver.

How can I execute this Batch from VBA (MS-Excel).

Thanks in advance

You should be able to use Shell to execute the batch file
pid = Shell("c:\batch.bat",vbHide)
