Set App = GetObject

I need help with this code.  I need to click a command button in excel and open Access to a certain "Form" and Hardcode the password.

I get a code "File name or class name not found during automation operation"

Any help would be greatly appreciated

    'Open a form in Access
    Dim App As Object
       Set App = GetObject("\\Dtcnas-ilsp002\mandatory\Analysts - Working Files\Carol\Demo\Volume.mdb;Jet OLEDB:Database Password=OPPS;")
     App.Application.DoCmd.RunMacro "Macro2CloseSwitchboard"
     App.Application.DoCmd.openform "Form"

Perhaps something like

'Open a form in Access
Dim objAccess As Object

Set objAccess = CreateObject("Access.Application")

With objAccess
    .OpenCurrentDatabase "\\Dtcnas-ilsp002\mandatory\Analysts - Working Files\Carol\Demo\Volume.mdb", , "OPPS"
    .DoCmd.RunMacro "Macro2CloseSwitchboard"
    .DoCmd.OpenForm "Form"
    .UserControl = True
End With

Set objAccess = Nothing
