Would it be sufficient to merely have your VB application open the Microsoft program with the target .xls in its window?
Would it be sufficient to have the .html open in a browser, launched from your VB?

no , it's a catalog with a lot of file's.
i have a main form with 20 buttons , and every button has to open a xls or html file.
It only has to open them to view , not to change or edit.
