Try to use this code:
Private Sub cmdDatabase_Click()
    Dim dbs as DAO.Database
    Set dbs = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).CreateDatabase("Exercise.accdb", dbLangGeneral)
    dbs.close
End Sub

Open in new window

DBEngine.Workspaces(0).CreateDatabase("Exercise.accdb", . . .) should return value to object, so proper syntax is:
Set ObjectVariable = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).CreateDatabase("Exercise.accdb", . . .)
