Export to Excel and open the worksheet

P: n/a
Jim
This should really be simple, but I can't figure it out. I have some
VB that exports a table in an Excel format ("C:\NewReport.xls"). After
the export is done, I simply want to have some code that launches
NewReport.xls in Excel.

How?

This is more than what U asked for, but it does include code on how to
open a worksheet - and past data into it.
