Do you mean "open", as in connect to the Tables?

Or "open" as in open up Forms, Reports, etc?

If the first:

Sub OpenDB()
 Dim db As DAO.Database
 Dim ws As DAO.WorkSpace
 Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
 Set ws = DBEngine.WorkSpaces(0)
 Set db = ws.OpenDatabase _
 ("Full Path to your Database", False, False, "MS Access;PWD=password")
 '<<< do whatever you need here >>>>
End Sub

From here:

If the second ... then it's a bit more difficult.
