[Solved] Calling Calc from a Basic program

I want to call CALC from a BASIC program, which works, but I need the command line parameter to load a specific spreadsheet.

Example:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenOffice 4\program\scalc.exe"

starts the application with a new spreadsheet but how do I specify an existing spreadsheet in the call?

The call would be outside.of OOP from a FreeBASIC *.exe program. Therefore an external IDE.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenOffice 4\program\scalc.exe" "c:\path_to_your_spreadsheet\spreadsheet.ods"

Do you mean the StarBasic inside the AOO, or your Basic IDE is located outside the AOO (VB, VBA or other)?
