Reading command line parameter with word 2007 macro

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I would like to pass a parameter from the command line to a word 2007 macro. I am able to launch the macro , but how do I pass the parameter (value of "hi" ) to my macro ?

ex: "c:\program files\microsoft office\office12\winword" /mtest "hi"

My "test" macro has a message box which I want to have read the value of "hi" and display.
