    Question Unanswered: launch a new program from a form

    Is there some way that I can launch a new program from a form in Access? I was thinking that this could be done with a button on the form with a macro. I have not done any VB coding yet and was wondering if this is possible. This would be a huge timesaver as I always have to go back to the desktop to start this program.

    Thanks.

    PS i did a search and came up with nothing on this....

    OK now I feel dumb. It is easy you just add the button click on Application and enter that path to the program you need. Very cool utility.
