How do I access menu commands in one program from

    I am a neophyte programmer.  I have figured out how to generate a simple Delphi 7 form with a button in it which will run an executable.  

    procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
          ShellExecute(Form1.Handle, 'open', 'c:\E3238s\bin\E3238s.exe', nil, nil, SW_SHOWNORMAL);

    My problem is I need to know how to access the menus that are a part of this executable.  For example how would I access the FILE menu in order to select EXIT.
