I have an icon-driven mapkey that launches Windows Explorer for my
current working directory. It uses a system call and looks like this
(note the single "." after explorer.exe):
mapkey explore @MAPKEY_NAMEOpens NT Explorer for current working
mapkey(continued) @MAPKEY_LABELExplore Current Dir;\
mapkey(continued) @SYSTEMstart "Opening Explorer" explorer.exe
You can do the same with Excel:
mapkey excel @MAPKEY_NAMEOpens spreadsheet.xls in Excel;\
mapkey(continued) @MAPKEY_LABELOpen spreadsheet.xls;\
mapkey(continued) @SYSTEMstart "Opening Excel" "C:\\Program
Key points here are:
* Either put in your full program path or set a Windows
environment path to your Office installation directory.
* Put in double forward-slashes in the place of singles so that
Pro/E doesn't think it's the end of a line.
* If the line runs too long (96 characters), put in a single
forward slash and continue on the next line as I show above.
* Of course, put in whatever path you need for your worksheet,
making sure to follow the two previous points.
Enjoy. (I've copied this to the group as I think it's fairly helpful
