    Delete shortcut by code (Access 2000)

    How can i delete with code a shortcut on the desktop? Since th desktop has different names in the different computers,is there any way to refer to the desktop and delete the link there?
    For example the following code below is not valid :
    DoCmd.DeleteObject acLink, "MyLibrary (2).lnk"

    DeleteObject can only delete database objects (tables, queries, forms etc.) within the current database. It is not meant to delete files. You can use

    Kill "path+filename"

    to delete a file. Of course, you must substitute the correct path and filename. You already know how to refer to the desktop, see for example <post:=562,210>post 562,210</post:>.
