I would like to create a RemoteApp that points to a particular network folder that contains some Excel files. The user should then be able to click on the files and it launches the Excel as a RemoteApp.

The reason for this is I have a satellite office and users need to edit a number of these excel files.
It would be too tedious to individually map the files as an Excel RemoteApp with arguments.

Well, you could try linking to explorer.exe and using command switches like this:

explorer.exe /e, \\myserver\fileshare

You'll need to publish Excel as well (just the standard Excel executable, no switches) in order for them to open properly, but I think this will work for you.
