I am trying to extrapolate data from a file using some vb6 code.  I need to be in Administrator mode when opening certain files and running this code in vb6

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim objMSWord As Word.Application
Dim myDoc As Word.Document
Set objMSWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
Set myDoc = objMSWord.Documents.Open("C:\111114.txt")

For Each p In myDoc.Paragraphs
  If InStr(p.Range.Text, "BlockedIP") > 0 Then
   'Skipping - found text
  Else
    p.Range.Delete
  End If
Next

myDoc.SaveAs ("c:\Users\Me\Desktop\052214_2.txt")
myDoc.Close
Set myDoc = Nothing
objMSWord.Quit
End Sub

Open in new window


Is there a way to run this code in administrator mode?
