    Attaching Progs to Buttons (Outlook 2000)

    Assuming my VBasic is less than rusty... how do I add a standard program (exe file) to a button to enable launching from wirthin Outlook -- or Word/Excel/Access too for that matter... or is there a difference?

    Once you've written your code snip you can create your button
    1. Right click on your tool bar and choose customize
    2. On the left side select macros
    3. On the right side click on your macro and drag it to the tool bar

    I think someone posted instructions for launching the Windows Calculator (calc.exe?) from a toolbar button, but I don't remember which forum. You should be able to find it in a few minutes of searching the Lounge and adapt it to your needs.
