Need to open a .csv file from code without assuming the use of Excel
Posted on 2007-07-26
I need to be able to open a .csv file from code.
In fact, what exactly needs to happen is that the the .csv file is opened in such a way as to mimic the double-clicking of the file from Windows Explorer when it may by default open Excel if it is on the PC or otherwise Notepad etc...... You see, many of the machines on which this software is running may not contain Excel, and even if they do, the user may expect .csv files to open in another app to which they associate .csv files.
This is a return to an old app out in the field using VB6. Is what I'm trying to do possible?
All and any help appreciated
