My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use office 2007.  I am trying to create a shortcut, that will load Access and the mdb file with the syntax /decompile.  This is the syntax I did but it is saying that file not found :
"C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Microsoft Office\Microsoft Office Access\msaccess.exe C:\RadhepKrishnawords\MyPwords.mdb" /decompile

I am sure there are syntax errors, the name of the directory where the file is in is : C:\RadhepKrishnawords and ther name of the file is MyPwords.mdb.  After the ".exe" the next line above continues with a space>
Thank u.

Just looked at that again... actually, it's going to be something like:\

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\msaccess.exe" "C:\RadhepKrishnawords\MyPwords.mdb" /decompile
