How to use a variable in @Comspec /c ?

Run(@ComSpec & '/c "filter $SelectedDoc"', "", @SW_HIDE)

How do you use a variable in a command line command? The above command does not work, it thinks I want to type in the command line "filter $SelectedDoc" when I really want to type somethign like "filter c:\program files\whatever\whatever.doc".

How about this:

Run(@ComSpec & '/c filter "' & $SelectedDoc & '"', '', @SW_HIDE)

Note the single quotes carefully. The double quotes are just part of the text inside the single quotes.
