Something that I could:

A simple way like, you could call the EXE for the editor, along with the parameter as the html file:

  Shell (ExeName & " abc.htm")

Normally, this should work.

You can also do this to open the file with the default app for editing....


Option Explicit

Public Const SW_SHOWNORMAL = 1

Public Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias _
  "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, _
  ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, _
  ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long


Sub EditWithDefaultApp(ByVal strToOpen As String, ByVal hWnd As Long)
 
  Call ShellExecute(hWnd, "edit", strToOpen, _
  vbNullString, vbNullString, SW_SHOWNORMAL)

End Sub

write the following line

Shell("C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\frontpg.exe" & " " & "C:\temp\index.html")

You can

 use the commondialog instead of hardcoding the path of index.html

Shell("C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\frontpg.exe" & " " & ActiveForm.CommonDialog1.Filename)



I f you are not able to understand then please tell me
