    Hi.

    Is it possible, on Excel use a comand button to open another software, like if click on the comand button he will open Word.

    Thanks

    Default Re: Using a comand button on EXCEL to open WORD?

    Hello.

    I named Word but the software that I need to open is Profis Anchor from Hilti (software to design steel and concrete joints). Even so, I will study and try to associate the codes that are on the links you adress me, I'm going to try switch the word reference's to hilti software and see if it works.

    My doubt is: the code that I need to write on VBA to open an external software (e.g something that I downloaded from internet) is similar to the code that I need to open an another office software?

    I don't know if I'm being clear with what I want to do.
    Thanks for your help.

    Simply substituting the name will not work.

    You will need to see if your software provider has any Developer documentation and any APIs.

    You should probably contact them.
