Launch External Executable Application by Macro
Posted by Santosh on May 24, 2001 12:53 PM
I am looking for a way to have an Excel Macro start a DOS based executable program. Once launched, I want the macro to input some information, such as user name and file name, into the external application, and once the external application has completed its task, the macro should close the external application.
I know Excel can open up a PowerPoint application so I was thinking it should be able to open a non-Microsoft application. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
