Excel - A macro to open file with Notepad



Issue


I would like to open a file with Notepad. I have a small macro for this purpose but the problem is that the code opens my file with Word , instead of Notepad.

Sub bloc() 
Dim s As Variant 
Dim i As Integer 


s = Shell("C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\WINWORD.EXE C:\Users\Username\Desktop\filename.txt") 

Solution


Replace the WINWORD.EXE by notepad.exe:

s = Shell("C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\notepad.exe C:\Users\Username\Desktop\filename.txt")
