I am trying to load a file from a directory using IE. So far I am using the following code:

Dim OpenInet
OpenInet = Shell("C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe d:\hi.txt", 1)

Is there a way that I can open the file not assuming the file will always be in the d:\ drive?

Thanks in Advance

I'm not shure if this is what you want...

Dim OpenInet
FileName =  "d:\hi.txt"  'You can change this value
OpenInet = Shell("C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe " + FileName, 1)
