Create and the macro in the database.
Create a normal shortcut to the database.
Move this shortcut to the desktop.
Edit the properties of the shortcut to include something like this to the end of the text in the "target" box:
/x YourMacro

so the "Target" box might look something like this:

"C:\Documents and Settings\Somebody\My Documents\YourDatabase.mdb" /x YourMacro
