This is what I'm doing: (using VB 2010 Express)

Dim showFile as Double

showFile = Shell("C:\...POWERPNT.EXE /S C:\Users\MyName\Folder with Files\" & _
"pptFile.ppsx", vbNormalFocus)

When I execute the program a message says:

"PowerPoint cannot read: C:\Users\MyName\Folder ."

then I click OK on the message box and it continues:

"PowerPoint cannot read: with Files\pptFile.ppsx"

Clearly there's something with the folder's name. I've already defined a variable String for the full file's name and then concatenated; no help.

Please help!
