I am usinf vs2008 c# to open a file with wordpad.      I am using the code
System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(startInfo) to start wordpad.     The file I am interested in can contain a space.    Wordpad works fine with a file containing no spaces in the filename.
I tried adding %1% at the end of the wordpad name, but that did not work.    My code is below.
Again, this works fine for a file such as  "C:\\data1b.dat";  

Thanks mnarcowich2007                    
System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo startInfo = new System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo();
            startInfo.FileName = "wordpad.exe";
            startInfo.Arguments = "C:\\Program Files\\GuiDM\\Examples\\data1b.dat";                        
            System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(startInfo);

make sure that the full name of the file is surrounded by another set of quotes.  Try:

startInfo.Arguments = "\"C:\\Program Files\\GuiDM\\Examples\\data1b.dat\"";
