    I was looking for the syntax, of the command-line, to startup Access. This
    particular db is Access97.

    Thanks, in advance.

    If you just want to start Access, then the path and file name of the
    executable located on your computer is appropriate:

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE\MSACCESS.EXE"

    If there are any illegal characters contained in the path or file name, then
    ensure that this is enclosed in double quotes.

    However, if you want to open a specific database file, with or without
    command-line switches, then the syntax requires the paths of the executable
    and the database file, and would be like the following (watch out for word
    wrap, as this is all one line):

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE\MSACCESS.EXE"
    "C:\MyDir\MyDB.mdb" /excl

    .. . . which opens the MyDB.mdb file exclusively. For a list of all of the
    command-line switches for Access 97, please see the following Web page:

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
