You can't do it through ADO or DAO, you need to use OLE

Access.Application...etc

set a reference to microsoft access in the project/references menu...then

Dim oAcc As New Access.Application

With oAcc
   .OpenCurrentDatabase "c:\mydb.mdb", False
   .DoCmd.RunMacro "macroname"
End With

set oAcc = nothing
