    Try this code. Note the excel macro is located in the Module1 of Test.xls file. (Test.xls!Module1.muotoilu)


    Private Sub Command35_Click()
    Dim XLApp As Object
    Set XLApp=CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    XLApp.Workbooks.Open Application.CurrentProject.Path & "\Test.xls"
    XLApp.Application.Visible = True
    XLApp.Run "Module1.muotoilu"
    XLApp.ActiveWorkBook.Save
    XLApp.Application.Quit
    Set XLApp=Nothing
    End Sub
