Automation Designer - Shell Execute

Hi all, I am attempting to run a batch job from Automation Designer, using the Shell Execute utilities tool. I thought that this would work, but all it does is open up the bat file in my UltraEdit. Any ideas? And does the Shell Execute not allow you to run programs from the CMD line?

Thanks in advance,

Scot H.

Try giving is a .cmd extension instead of .bat.
