Macro to run another Macro file (.swp)

Hello,

  I would like to write a macro file (.swp) to run another macro file.  How do I do this?

We have like 20 macros we uses all the time, we store them on our harddrive under "C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks\Macros", this way we can assign it a hot key under the keyboard shortcuts. But some of these macros get changed a lot (bugs or improvements) and we have to up date every computer that uses them (about 40). What I would like to do is store these macros on a network folder "X:\Solidworks\Macros" and then make a macros that will point to and run the ones on the network that we can store on the local harddrive and not have to update.

  So I would like to make a local swp file that will run a different swp file on the network.
