Open a form in another database problem

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I use this code to open a form in another database:

Private Sub btnOpenPlatinumTraveler_Click()
    Dim objACC As New Access.Application
    Set objACC = GetObject("T:\Diode Travelers Application\Source\DiodePlatinumDiffusionTravelerApplication.accdb")
    objACC.DoCmd.OpenForm ("Switchboard"), acNormal
'    objACC.Quit
'    Set objACC = Nothing
End Sub

But it opens the form and closes it immediately.  I can use a breakpoint at End Sub to see the form is open.  And I can use it normally.  

What needs to be done to keep the form open?
