I have code where I dont reference access in my project itself.  Can I execute a macro using the folliowing code?  I dont see the DoCmd options under my properties.  I would rather just use something similar to what I have and not reference access.  Here is what I use now:

        Set wsAccessWs = DBEngine.Workspaces(0)
        Set dbAccessDb = wsAccessWs.OpenDatabase(App.Path & gsDBName, False, False)

the dbAccessDb has .execute and then a query name.  But I dont see anything for executing a macro.  Thanks all.

You might be able to use Shell to start Access, then use the /x macroname command line switch to execute that specific macro

You can use automation to instantiate an MSAccess object.  That will then allow you to invoke the .DoCMD method of the object to run the macro.
