Default Run Outside application from toolbar button

Although using Word 2002, I still have the clipart gallery from Office 2000,
and would like to access it by using a toolbar button. Problem is I am
having trouble creating a macro to run any outside application, let alone
the clip gallery (which I can only access from a shortcut on the Windows XP
main program menu. (Can't find or properly name the actual clip executable.
Help would be appreciated--Thank you

In general terms, you'd need to assign a macro to the toolbar button. Most
likely, the macro would need to use the Shell command to start the other
application. But for this you would definitely need the exact path for the
executable file.

You don't get a file path when you right-click the shortcut and look at
"Properties"? In my experience, such applets are either installed in the
Office folder (along with Winword.exe, etc.) or in their own folder under
Program files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared. I'm not sure this is what you're
looking for, but I do see a folder named ArtGalry in this path, and in it
Cag.exe, which seems to be what you're looking for.

Default start Clipart from Toolbar in Word

In officeXP Word, I want to use Clipart.
Most easy way to do so is using a button in the Toolbar including a macro.
I do not know how to make that toolbar and the macro.
I found the Cag.exe file.
