Executing Programs Stored in Variables

Question:
Is it possible to store a MS-DOS pathname in a variable, and run the program at that path with the shell command?

Answer:
The Shell command can be given a string directly or one that is in a variable. i.e.

Dim s as String
Dim ret as integer

s = "COMMAND.COM"
ret = Shell(s)
