Danny KonCommented:
I don't think you can but I think you can do what you want if you start excel and you let excel execute a macro when it starts

find the excel.exe put the path and the exe in a batch and create the macro in excel as follows:

Press Alt+F11 to go to Visual Basic Editor
In the "Project" window, double-click on "ThisWorkbook"
Enter the macro code in the workbook
   Private Sub Workbook_Open()

and put here your code
