I have a desktop shortcut ("C:\Program Files\Program1\Program1.exe" -l test1://1.1.1.1:1 -s "My Thing") that opens an application with no issues as all. I want to assign this to a command button on a form but it is not working. I tried the following but receive run-time error 490: Cannot Open Specified File. What am I missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Application.FollowHyperlink("""C:\Program Files\Program1\Program1.exe"" " & "-l test1://1.1.1.1:1 -s" & " ""My Thing""")

Hi Steve,

Try using Shell instead.

Hope it helps...

You could try something like:

Shell """C:\Program Files\Program1\Program1.exe"" " & "-l test1://1.1.1.1:1 -s" & " ""My Thing"""

Hope it helps... (you may have to play with the positions and number of quotes to use)

We have a wiki link on the topic: http://www.UtterAccess.com/wiki/Opening_Files_From_Access

There's basically three ways: Hyperlink, Shell or ShellExecute, each of which gets handled slightly differently and their own caveats. That article describes them. ShellExecute is usually the preferred method, IMO.

Cheers,
