I have tried the following code but I get “File Not Found” error message if these Microsoft programs are not in filepath c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office
(e.g. If User has upgraded from Office 97 to Office 2000)
Code Sample 1
Dim stAppName = “winword.exe c:\My Documents\myfile.doc”
Call Shell (stAppName,1)
Code Sample 2
MyAppId = Shell(“winword.exe c:\My Documents\myfile.doc”,1)
Do you have a code sample that will work regardless of where Excel, Word or Power Point .exe's are stored on a user's PC?
