Create module in access 2003 to open query in another database

Hi all.

We use a switchboard in Access 2003.

I want to be able to open a query that is in another database, the query accepts two date parameters. I created the code provided below, but when I click the switchboard button it gives me the following error: "There was an error executing the command."

Yet if I run it directly from the VBA window it runs fine.

What am I doing wrong?
Thank you in advance!
Function ExpectedShipDateQuery() As String
 
Dim objAccess As Object
Set objAccess = CreateObject("Access.Application")
objAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase "\\myServer\access data\myOtherDatabase.mdb"
objAccess.Visible = True
objAccess.DoCmd.OpenQuery "Expected Ship Date"
Set objAccess = Nothing
 
End Function

Open in new window

Since this is a function, access is expecting to return a value in  expectedshipdatequery.  You are not setting that value to anything.  Do you want a value returned from the other database or are you just using the parameters to update something in the other database?
