This opens pdf beautifully but I want to open it in Foxit reader, not acrobat reader. Now it always opens in acrobat. Normal double clicking in windows explorer opens it in Foxit. So Foxit is my default program for pdf's.

Code:
Sub OpenPDFdoc()
    ActiveWorkbook.FollowHyperlink "E:\Copiot O - V\Omat tiedostot\Yritys\Laskut ja kuitit\" & ActiveSheet.Range("I6").Value & ".pdf", NewWindow:=True
End Sub
 

Excel Facts

Format cells as time
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+2 to format cells as time. (Shift 2 is the @ sign).

Well this tries to open it in foxit:

Code:
MyPath = "C:\Program Files\Foxit Software\Foxit Phantom\Foxit Phantom.exe"
MyFile = "E:\Copiot O - V\Omat tiedostot\Yritys\Laskut ja kuitit\" & ActiveSheet.Range("N4").Value & ".pdf"
Shell MyPath & " " & MyFile, vbNormalFocus

But I get this kind of window
