I'm using MS Excel 2003,Window 2000, and I have an excel sheet with employee names & there PBX extentions & Phone numbers.
In the other hand, I have a PBX system which work fine with telnet commands.
So, i was wondering if there is a away to set telnet command within excel sheet and programme it throught VBA or macro to send and excute telnet command diretcly without the need of opening a seperate CMD window and pinging the PBX IP by telnet.
Its a an excel sheet for employees duty shift.

best regrads,

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

You can use the Shell function to perform command-line commands.

eg. Shell("C:\MyProg.exe /f")

Check it out in the VB Editor help.
