calling a Vbscript from a Vbscript

i am getting an error when using the code below that says "Cannot use parentheses when calling a sub".


what is the correct way to call a new vbscript from an existing vbscript?
Dim oShell, a 
oShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell") 
a = "C:\users\administrator\desktop\test.vbs" 
oShell.run(a, 3, True)

not sure that will work. my main script is a VBS file not a WSF file and i am not trying to pull a function from another script but pass some variables onto the 2nd script via arguments and then execute the whole thing.
