Hi there,

I found this other post:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Groupware/Outlook/Q_21372956.html 

which allows an Outlook Appointment to open a hyperlink when that Appointment is activated.

What I'd like to do is open an Excel spreadsheet instead of the hyperlink. Is this possible to do?
I've attatched the code that I'm using, which I have running.

Many thanks,
Scott.
'Macro begins here
Public WithEvents objReminders As Outlook.Reminders, _
    WithEvents objCalendarItems As Outlook.Items
 
Private Sub Application_Startup()
    Dim objNS As NameSpace
    Set objNS = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    ' instantiate Items collections for folders we want to monitor
    Set objInboxItems = objNS.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar).Items
    Set objNS = Nothing
    Set objReminders = Application.Reminders
End Sub
 
Private Sub objReminders_ReminderFire(ByVal ReminderObject As Reminder)
    Dim objShell As Object, _
        objAppointment As Object
    Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
    If ReminderObject.Item.Class = olAppointment Then
        Set objAppointment = ReminderObject.Item
        'Change the start interval on the next line as desired.  The interval is in minutes.
        If DateDiff("n", Now, objAppointment.Start) <= 2 Then
            'Change the triggering category name on the next line as desired.
            If objAppointment.Categories = "LaunchWeb" Then
                objShell.Run objAppointment.Location
            End If
        End If
    End If
    Set objAppointment = Nothing
    Set objShell = Nothing
End Sub

I've managed to sort it.

Using the same method wasn't working, but I removed the spaces from the path to my excel file and it's now working.

Thanks
