Open and display an Access 2000 Database

The Following is my code for this event:

Private Sub cmdOpenDatabase_Click()
Dim x As Object

On Error Resume Next
Set x = GetObject("G:\Common\AnnuityGeneralServices\DailyVarianceSystem\Variance.mdb")
If x Is Nothing Then
  'if you get here, the database is not available or Access is not installed!
 
Else
  x.Visible = True
End If

End Sub

When it executes you can see the Splash screen for the database flash for just a fraction of a second and then it closes the Database.  Can you help?

Have you tried ShellExecute API:

Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Call ShellExecute(hwnd, "Open", ("C:\Test.mdb"), "", App.Path, 1)
End Sub
