 Openning excel file and execute macro & parameters

Hello everyone,

I have to make a program in VB. This program has to open
an Ms Excel file and run a macro. This macro may be
different depending the task I have to do. I know how to
use "auto_open" and autoexecute macro. For now I use the
following code to start Excel and openning my file:

    Public XL As Object


    Set XL = GetObject(TEMPLATE)

    XL.Application.Visible = True

    Set XL = Nothing

Also for those guys who are not newbie like me. I would
like to how to start Excel (to open an Excel file) with
parameters (if possible).

Thank you.

When you open Excel using Automation through GetObject or CreateObject,
there is no option to pass command-line parameters such as a macro to run.

I would suggest:
1. open Excel using Automation as you are doing
2. don't use auto_open macros
3. execute the desired macro from your VB code using the Run method of the
Excel Application object.   See Q177760.
