Run External Programs With VBA
I'm wondering if it is a all possible to have a VBA macro call another program (like a Perl scripts, or a Python script) from within VBA?
I have no idea if this is possible. I know that people often write programs which call other programs, but would have no idea where to get started on this.
If it IS possible, can you tell me if it is is extremely complicated?
I have to have a VBA script read some complicated text files, and parse and extract information from them. Perl is so great at this, and I seem to get a headache trying to do any pattern searching and matching with VBA. If it was instead possible to write a Perl script, which is then run by VBA, that would make my life so much easier... :-)
Thank you all in advance.
