    That doesn't help. Explain what you mean, what you have tried already, and finally, the part that you are stuck with. We don't write apps for people

    Re: How do I?

    You can shell to the program using the shell statement. Parameters can be passed as part of the command sent to the shell. The calling program can be terminated afterward just the same as any program.

    The program you have shelled to can receive the command line parameters in the Command$ variable. Assuming of course that the program you are calling is one that you are writing in VB as well.

    Unless they are both written by him/her. Then you could pass common variables.

    Re: How do I?

    Well, it is written by me/her. But you know, I don't want to screw up. I will post my code but for the .... of it, I forgot to make the marks before and after the code.
    I.E I thought
    [code]
    ...
    [codeend]

    But that doesnt' work

    So, I'll just wait and have dglienna write it for me.

    Thanks

    Cathy,
    Take a look at this sample, it uses GetExitCodeprocess API to check the return value.
