I hava tried this and I get an error on script line #27

I removed the $ from the field name and it worked! :) This is the final code that I used.
Thank you!

' Use ShellExecute to open a particular file
Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")

objShell.ShellExecute( "M:\Quality Logs\Quality Logs\Master-CofA File\" & ML_LOTSERIALNO & ".pdf" )
