I have used the CreateDatabase method in vb to create a new access database. I now need to open this new database and close the existing one. The code I am using to do this is as follows: Application.FollowHyperlink strSaveFileName Application.Quit Where strSaveFileName is the string file path to the newly created database. When I run this I am getting an error: Cannot Open Specified File. This doesn't make sense to me because I can open the new database manually and have also tried adding a hyperlink on my form that points directly to the new database - and this works fine. Any suggestions?
