I want to call shell function  and supply parameter

Public Function Te(b)
t = "Shell" & "(" & Chr(34) & "telnet " & b & Chr(34) & ", vbnormalfocus)"
Te = t
End Function

Now if I call
Private Sub Command2_Click()
 l = Te("matt")
 End Sub
Vb assigns string to l but fail to "call" shell
How to implement it?

Try it his way...

Public Function Te(b)
dim hProg as long
t = Chr(34) & "telnet " & b & Chr(34)
hProg = Shell(t, VbNormalFocus)
End Function
