Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In general, you can run Shell commands with code like:

<pre>’ Assume a string called shellCommand
Dim wshShell as Object

Set aWshShell = WScript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)
aWshShell.Exec shellCommand</pre>

You can more information on Exec at <a href=”http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ateytk4a(VS.85).aspx”>Microsoft’s WshShell.Exec reference for VBA</a>.
