Excel: excel macro to execute windows run command?

I found the following code here on these forums but it errors out . I guess X is a variable that needs to be defined? Or is there another method to get the run command to come up? Sub Macro1()x = Shell("cmd.exe /c C:\TestFolder\Book1.pdf", 1)End Sub
