I have an Access 2010 database which when closed opens up the Access window as though I want to create a new database.  Why would this be happening?

Your current code is closing your application, not Access.

I would suggest using

Application.Quit acQuitSaveAll

the SaveAll isn't technically necessary since your users shouldn't be modifying application objects but it does prevent accidents if you happen to have warnings set to Off.

Either that, or you have compact on close set in File, Access Options (at the bottom of the menu) and it's having some type of issue.

>  or you have compact on close set in File

- and, I guess, under Options, Current Database, a start Form specified. Remove this if you wish to compact the database preserving the filename.

Application.Quit acQuitSaveAll did the job.

I still have compact on close set in File, Access Options enabled but it is no longer opening the new database window.

And I still have a start form enabled.
