    Opening a file from code

    Hello
    I want to open a Autocad dwg file from code in my program. I have a string variable containing the full path and file name.
    I want to open the Autocad dwg file in an instance of Autocad that is already running, I don't want to open Autocad.
    The program is written in VB 6.0. Is this possible?

    Thank you
    John

    Use the ShellExecute API function. It should be possible.
