You might use the "ShellExecute" command. It is not immediately
available in VBA. You need to use Windows API to set up these calls.
"ShellExecute opens a file with its default program.
There is an example of this in one of my publicly available macros
"CopyCustomInfo". I use ShellExecute to open the link to my website
from the user interface.
'put this in the general declarations section of your macro
Public Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias
"ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, _
ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal
lpParameters As String, _
ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long
'example of a Sub using "ShellExecute"
Public Sub OpenEsoxWeb()
ShellExecute 0, vbNullString, "
",vbNullString, "C:\", 1
