Use the following code

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    OLE1.SourceDoc ='File to be displayed
    OLE1.Action = 0
End Sub

This is how I tried it from the start, but vb tells me expected line number or statement or label or end of statement.
( that is when I simply say ole1.sourcedoc = C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\xxx.xls)
If I try
ole1.sourcedoc = 'c:\windows....
it says expected expression
Can you help me?
