Currently have a routine that opens exe files, works great... now would like to broaden functionality.
        Dim myAppPath As String = myRumbaExes & "\" & txtProgramName.Text

How do I open Access 97 and / or Access 2000 databases (no security)

       There are 2 ways of opening them
               1) Open MDB and Windows database with file association ie Access 97 runtime on PC base

               2) Call the program direct c:\Program Files\Microsoft\Msaccess.exe c:\myDB.mdb

I am opening runtime versions of Access where the PC base has already got a version of Access runtime installed on it

Can you guys advise ta
