Follow up to why oh why

Many thanks to everyone who took the time to pass on tips re Shell and wot-not, following my Why oh why post a wee while back. I thought I#8217;d post a brief update, and link to Julian#8217;s excellent ShellExecute tip. I#8217;m linking to this more because I was interested to see a Lotusscript implementation of a Win32 function I hadn't considered before, namely FindExecutable. Now, that could well be of use!

Like I said in my original post, I went down the COM route, if only to get some more experience coding stuff with that. I stand by my comments with regards the need for a version number when activating a PowerPoint object though — that’s nuts!

Anyway, my thanks to one and all. This #8217;blogging lark is quite good innit?
