    Start Word and Excel (2000/XP)

    I would like to have a shortcut or .bat file that opens both Excel (with a specific workbook open) and Word (setup to open with an add-in). I know how to use the appropriate startup swtiches for Excel and Word, but how do I set it up in the batch file or shortcut?

    Thanks!

    A simple bat file with just the two lines

    <font face="Georgia"> START Winword
    START Excel</font face=georgia>

    seems to do the trick for me.

    Thank you, Stuart! I had the entire path in their originally and it wasn't working right. I forgot that XP was "smart" about where things were using the Start command. I knew it was simple.
