Conditionally launching macro
Excel 97 on NT
I would like to launch a macro based on a command line switch, but cannot figure out how to do it. In Access ...Access.exe /x MacroName works, but no such thing Exists in Excel. I cannot seem to capture the command line with the VB command "Command" either. If it did work, I could use the workbook open event with a select case statement. The only thing I can get to work is to use WSH to launch Excel, open the workbook and then launch the macro.
What alternatives have I missed? Thanks.

Re: Conditionally launching macro
I don't know if this works for Excel 97, but in Excel 2000 it should be possible to start up Excel and open a specified file in read-only mode.
Haven't tried it out myself...
