This (VB5) code will run a macro:


    Dim objAccess As New Access.Application
    objAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase (App.Path + "\" + gszDatabaseName)
    objAccess.DoCmd.SetWarnings False
    objAccess.DoCmd.RunMacro "Excel Output Macro", 1
    objAccess.CloseCurrentDatabase

You need to include a reference to the "Microsoft Access 8.0 Object Library", or whatever version of acces you'r using.

Keep in mind that this requires the correct version Access to be properly installed in the target machine. This code will fail if a full-blown version of Access (featuring Automation) is not installed.
