I would like to learn the process for launching an Access Report from a Command Line.
I have a program which uses an Access database. I have generated a report to view individual records which are generated by the program, and need to insert a Command Line in the program to automatically launch the report after the program has run a session.
I have a field for inserting the command line (tested with a simple executable), but now I would like to launch the report automatically.
the Windows program I am using has command line prompts to launch an event, such as report, when a program session ends. There are fields in which I need to enter the command string, i.e. C:\Program Files\.... etc. and it opens in a separate desktop window.
When the session ends, I can launch a program (as a test) such as word or access, but I would really like to open the report I generated in Access.
Well that is more windows programming. One thing you may want to try is open access find your report and right click then choose create shortcut. Browse for where you want it. Then since you know how to open Access or Word at the command prompt do the same thing with this shortcut and see if it works.
