hello,

i am trying to make a batch file that starts several EXE's as well as an excel spreadsheet which is located on a network share.

the exe's start perfectly, however when i try to open the excel document, because it is on a network share, windows is telling me that CMD does not support the use of UNC paths... is there a way around this?

the command i was using was:

cd "\\server\folder"
call "excel document"

bumppp
