    Open Database through form (2000)

    Hi-

    I want to create a form that has a list box with names of databases. Based on my selection, I then want it to open that Database in another instance of Access and in its own window. I'm trying to do this through VBA, but don't quit understand the various Open methods.

    Any help is appreciated.

    You probably can use the Shell function (see Access Help). All you need to do is specify the full path to the database, and Windows will recognize it as an Access database and open Access to run it.
