Break an Auto Exec Macro

I just did something stupid, I wrote an Auto Exec Macro that runs a macro and then quits Access.  Now I can’t break the macro to edit the database.  I tried to Ctrl_Break but it didn’t stop it.  Lucky thing I have a back up  before I wrote this.  How do I stop the macro from running?

Any help would greatly be appreciated!!

Hold your SHIFT button down when you open your Access app.  This will bypass AutoExec macros and Startup objects.
Then you can edit-delete your AutoExec macro.
