    This can be done with VB's shell command. See the example below.

    Code:
     Dim str, str1 As String
      str = Chr(34) & "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\office\Winword.exe" & Chr(34)
      str1 = Chr(34) & "D:\tyty.doc" & Chr(34)
      Dim id As Double
      MsgBox str
      MsgBox str1
       Shell str & " " & str1, vbNormalFocus
