Open excel by vba


I have the following to open a file in excel
Dim xFSO As Object
Dim Tfolder, strMyFile
strMyFile = "C:\AnnualReport\FinancialReport.xls"
Tfolder = "C:\Program Files (x86)"
Set xFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
If Not xFSO.FolderExists(Tfolder) Then
    Call Shell("C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\excel.exe ""strmyfile""", 1)
    Call Shell("C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\excel.exe ""strmyfile""", 1)
End If

excel opens but warns it can't find the file stmyfile. I have an idea the quotes are incorrect. Any help appreciated
