Default script to launch a program from excel

Just hyperlink to the program and click the link:

In some cell, enter something like:

=HYPERLINK("file:///C:\test\telnet.exe","Telnet") and click the link

Of course, you would modify this to refer to the proper folder on your
computer.

I don't know enough about procomm to tell you the specifics, however the
general idea of using Excel to control and interact with another application
is illustrated in:
