Want to use sendkeys in Outlook to open Excel file



I have a form in Outlook that I have saved the data from as a .txt file. I
want to get the VBscript code in Outlook to activate Excel (which I have
done) and open a spreadsheet. I can't use the normal openfile commands as the
spreadsheet has an Auto_Open macro in Macro4 language that I want to kick off
when the file is opened. Using the fileopen command supresses the Auto_Open
feature. To bypass this I want to use Sendkeys. This works up until the Open
shell is created and then my Excel.sendkeys commands fail. What do I send my
sendkeys command to insert the filepath I wish to have opened?
