Default control Excel VBA macro with a VB 05-designed UI

hello,
I have many Excel workbooks that I receive from clients I run various Excel VBA macros on depending on which workbook it is, and I need to automate all of this so that I can run an simple .exe user interface designed in VB 2005 Express Edition where when that interface is run, a small window opens on the desktop with a group of buttons, when the user clicks one of the buttons, Excel launches loads the appropriate file and runs an already-existing appropriate Excel macro, then some file maintenance is done, like moving a group of files from one subdirectory to another.
I'm new to VB and don't know where to start to make this happen. Could someone show me how to do this/where to begin?
thanks in advance,
david

I would be interested in more information on this topic, as well.

My company's CFO receives Excel spreadsheets from a vendor that we need to modify and import into our inventory system.
I would love to find a way to rename the worksheet and the workbook from within my VB 2K5 application, instead of requiring him to do them manually or to even run the macro I've written. Just select the menu option and it gets done "automagically".

Thanks for any help you can give me.
Karen
