Excel 2016 ADO connection and Access 2016

When I run the following code a connection is made to an Access database. Ok.
However, if the database is open I get an error.

Is it possible to connect to an Access database with ADO like this AND have the database open?
If so how?

Thanks

Public objConn As New ADODB.Connection

Sub DBConnectionAccess()

    If CBool(objConn.State And adStateOpen) Then objConn.Close

    Dim strPathToDB As String
                 
    'open connection to Access database
    strPathToDB = "C:\MyTest\Database\test.accdb"
    objConn.Open "Provider = Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;" & "Data Source=" & strPathToDB

    Exit Sub

End Sub

I couldn't repeat the problem. It did not happen again.
However, Scott's advice is good.
