open csv file as excel by using command prompt

I have to open csv file after creating from Powerbuilder.
Upon creating csv file , I have to open csv file as excel file automatically.

So I think it is better to use command prompt.
How could I open csv file as excel by using command prompt?

Hi,

pls try something like

"c:\program files\microsoft office\office12\excel.exe" "c:\newfile.csv" 

Open in new window

Adjust the path of Excel accordingly

if i have a file called examples.csv in a folder called downloads on my E: drive - so the path to the file is e:\downloads\examples.csv.   I simply need to call excel.exe and provide the filename path at  the end

so, assuming  that the PATH variable does not already include the path to the Excel exe file, I would need to put in "c:\program files (x86)\microsoft office\office15\excel.exe" to launch Excel (2013)

to launch excel and open the CSV file, I would simply type this command (you need the quotations because of the spaces in the folder path)

"c:\program files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\Excel.exe" e:\downloads\examples.csv

The path written for location at installed excel seems it depends on where you installed office and what version installed.
So I think if I use this command, I should have located the installed path before.
Can't I use other way or can I locate the path simply by using command prompt or powerbuilder?

you could use additional commands to find the excel.exe file, and then build that into the path - however that is a bit more complex.


much easier to accomplish in VBS

strComputer="."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
objExcel.Visible = TRUE
Set objWorkbook = objExcel.Workbooks.Open("e:\downloads\examples.csv")

Open in new window

If the default operation for CSV is to open them in Excel, just calling the CSV file will do.
Usually Office is in PATH, and you can use start excel c:\folder\file.csv.
