How do I reference the parameter from the MS Access Macro

I would like to start access from command line, running a macro when the mdb starts, and pass a parameter to that macro, straight from the command line. Something like this:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\msaccess.exe" "c:\test.mdb" /x Macro_access_start "123"

The macro "Macro_access_start" would start a form that was based on query the parameter "well" to filter the data

Is this possible? How do I reference the parameter from the Macro?

Thanks!

Look at sample. Command line should be:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\msaccess.exe" "c:\test.mdb" /x Macro_access_start /cmd "123"

Open in new window

test.mdb

I tried the attached access file with the command but it is not working.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\MSACCESS.EXE" "D:\test123.mdb" /x WBI  /cmd ”123”
test123.mdb

If you a trying to open form with some criteria, you can use Where line.
Try this sample. EP_A_NUM is decimal, so you should remove quotes around parameter:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\MSACCESS.EXE" "D:\test123.mdb" /x WBI  /cmd 123
test123.mdb
