Excel Facts

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

In code? Like this-

Code:
Dim appAccess As Access.Application

Sub OpenDatabase()

Set appAccess = New Access.Application

With appAccess
    .OpenCurrentDatabase "C:\My Documents\db1.mdb"
    .Visible = True
End With

End Sub

Note you must declare appAccess as a module level variable.

Oh... errrm

Have you set a reference to the Access object library?

To get Office programs talking to eachother you need to set a reference to each application's object library in the relevant program's VBE (Visual Basic Editor)

So, in your Word VBE - goto Tools|References and scroll down the listbox until you get to Microsoft Access x.0 Object Library (where x is the version i.e 9.0 for Office 2000)

Check the box & you shouldn't get the error message..

Hope this helps,
