Hi,
When I use the function docmd.runcommand acCmdMakeMdeFile
Access97 askes me a name and a location for the new mde-file.
Is it possible to pass this information with parameters?

Try using the SendKeys command to automatically "type" the information into the dialog box.

Check Access help for details as the timing of this with dialog boxes can be tricky.

You can use this action to enter information in a dialog box, particularly if you don't want to interrupt the macro to respond manually to the dialog box. Some Microsoft Access actions, such as PrintOut and FindRecord, automatically select the options in certain frequently used dialog boxes. You can use the SendKeys action to select the options in less commonly used dialog boxes.

Because the dialog box suspends the macro, you must put the SendKeys action before the action that causes the dialog box to open and set the Wait argument to No.
