hi again Mandy.
here's the code:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Counter = 19
Dim Stringstogether
Do
        Dim Command
        Command = Worksheets("ext2010").Cells(Counter, 2).Value
        Stringstogether = Stringstogether & Command & VbCrLf 
Loop Until Command = ""

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Set oFile = FSO.CreateTextFile(" c:\fso\CleanupFiles.ps1")
oFile.WriteLine Stringstogether 
oFile.Close

Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.shell")
 
objShell.run("powershell -noexit -file c:\fso\CleanupFiles.ps1")
End Sub

Open in new window

change the counter to the first line where the commands starts.
btw, wouldn't be easier to simple copy all the commands from the excel and create the PS file yourself?
