Hi,
lets suppose to have a connection (client server) to a remote system. Is it possible to call a remote routine via macro in Excel?
If yes, may you give me an example?

Thanks in advance for your kind cooperation.

If your data has zip codes, postal codes, or city names, select the data and use Insert, 3D Map. (Found to right of chart icons).

You can execute another program from Excel VBA via the Shell function. Here's an example from the VBA help file:
Code:
RetVal = Shell("C:\WINDOWS\CALC.EXE", 1)    ' Run Calculator.
and, one that I run in a macro:
Code:
RetVal = Shell("C:\Documents and Settings\Reports\Test Report Generator 1.exe", 3)

Hope that helps!
