VBA script to toggle on and off database link

jtequia asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have an access db front end app and I want to link to more than 1access db back end. I want my system ( Front end ) to be able to establish the link once a certain module is open ( application form ) and remove link once the form is closed. So i need to be able to write down a script ( VBA routine ) to turn the link on and off.  I know that i can do it with refresh link using a connect property, but i want to know how to establish the link for the first time using VBA from a password-protected database.
