The windows batch file I need to run is located on a server that I have created a map for (E drive). How can I get the following code to work on the mapped drive of E?
When I log onto the F9 server via a VNC viewer connection, the file path is:
Any help is always appreciated!
Dim Update As Double
Update = Shell("cmd /k E:\IFMUpdate.bat", vbNormalFocus)

I don't do VB, but from an ordinary server point of view I would suggest:
Update = Shell("cmd /k E:\F9V5\pro50_p\IFMUpdate.bat", vbNormalFocus)
and possibly change the cmd /k to cmd /c .
Obviously this assumes that you have mapped E: to C$ on the server - if this isn't the case, the path will change accordingly!BATcher
