running a program with parameters

In a VB5 program I would like to start another application with some parameters requested on the command line. The Shell function doesn't allow to provide parameters. Is there another solution ?
Thanks in advance.

The shell function DOES allow parameters.

x = Shell("notepad.exe C:\MyFile.txt")
