Launching an application from Excel 2011 on Mac using Shell command
Posted on 2014-04-17
I'm trying to work out how to launch an application on a mac from Excel 2011. On Windows 7 using the shell command in Excel 2010 does the job perfectly. The only response I get on the mac is that the path can't be found.
I have a simple application called GetPath that lives on the desktop. I use the following code:
Shell "Macintosh HD:Users:MyName:Desktop:GetPath"
Is it a possibility that for some reason the hard drive has another name? and if so, how can I find out?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
