API Calls with Microsoft Access 2007

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have been using API calls like ShellSearch and ShellExecute with Microsoft Access 2003. We recently migrated to Microsoft Access 2007. When I run them with Microsoft Access 2007, they do not execute. No error messages are generated, and nothing happens.  It seems like something is blocking their execution.

Does anyone have any ideas?
