Please help:

I need to run Windows calculator from a macro assigned button. I need the code first then assign it to the button. I once read a posting with this item but I don't remember the subject. If anyone knows the code for this I'll appreciate sharing it. Thank you.

Excel already has a built in icon to call the windows calculator.

from the menu bar select View>Toolbars>Customize
from the 'Customize' dialog box select the 'Commands' tab, and select the 'Tools' category. Scroll to the bottom of the 'Commands' box and you should see an icon that looks like a calculator labeled 'Custom'. Drag this icon to your toolbar, and you will have an icon that calls the windows calculator.
