    I am using the shell statement to execute another program.

    Shell (ls_fileName, vbMinimizedNoFocus)

    I want to loop and start a number of these programs, but the primary program is waiting for the newly spawned program to die before continuing through the code. What causes this (my experience thus far is that the Shell statement is asynchronous). Thanks.
