    WOPR from Outlook (MSO 2003)

    If I wanted to write a macro (for a button maybe) to call WOPR, I tried:

    Public Sub Wopr()
    Shell ("http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/login.pl?Cat="), vbNormalFocus
    End Sub

    But it wouldn't execute. With just enough basic to be dangerous, I had figured to use the same command structure that works galling other progs on my machine, but, oh well...

    How might I fix this?

    Regards,

    Shell is used to start an application, but an URL is not an application, it is a web address.

    Why would you want to use a macro to open the Lounge from Outlook? Add the Lounge to your Favorites, and/or add a shortcut to your Quick Launch Toolbar, etc.

    Hans:

    What I want to do is get WOPR to open inside of Outlook, not outside separate in the browser...

    Shortcut should work, though... I guess also I was just trying it to see...

    Shell wouldn't have helped then, for Shell always starts an application in a separate window.

    Shortcut worked out fine... Wish MS had left to Outlook Bar... Oh well...

    Thanks for the help...
