Start --> Run --> in vba

I can go to Start --> Run --> and put in 'sas "mylocation.sas"' and it runs in batch mode for me.

How can I do this in vba code?

Try create a .vbs file.

1. open notepad, enter the below script:

Dim WSH
AppToRun = "sas mylocation.sas"
Set WSH = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WSH.Run AppToRun

same it as c:\test.vbs

2. run it from Start > Run , type c:\test.vbs

3. your program runs now!

Hope this helps
