I can open access fine using the following command line but, i cannot get the syntax for it to connect in excel through any of the wizards.  Any help would be appreciated-

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\root\office15\msaccess.exe" "\\srv05\database.mdb" /wrkgrp "\\srv05\folder2\jobboss.mdw" /user username /pwd password123
