Hi All,

I was hoping that someone would be able to help with my query.

I have 2 lines of vbScript that launch Outlook.exe.

This script has been embedded into an HTML page. So when the page is called, Outlook opens.

The problem is, it opens into a new window, with the original window staying blank in the background.

Is there a way to call the vbScript and have Outlook open in the original window instead of a new one.

Cheers all


p.s The vbScript looks like this

Set oShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
oShell.Run "outlook.exe", 1, False
