    Transfer control to another database (2000)

    I remember seeing some code that would check the version of an access database and compare it to a revision number. If it was outdated, the code would transfer control to the patch database, shut down the calling database, and copy the current version of the database to the location of the calling user. I thought it was published in the Developer's Handbook or maybe Access Advisor, but I can't find it now that I need it.

    Can someone help me out, please.

    Is it possible that you're thinking of Ken Wilkinson's article, Automatically Update Access Databases, published in the November 2000 issue of Access-SQL-VB Advisor magazine? it covered an approach like that.
