Hi all i want to do as per this old post but i'm stuck


i want to use the code eg

Sub macro1()
msgbox ipaddress
x = Shell("RUNDLL32.EXE URL.DLL,FileProtocolHandler telnet:" & ipaddress , vbNormalFocus)
End Sub

i can't get the code to look at the object and pull the ip address from the custom fields section.
