    Unanswered: VBA Connection Strings and MS Access

    Hello,

    I'm a pretty advanced user of MS Access and have some VBA background, but have never had to set up a connection to a another database.

    I'm basically just trying to learn how this is done by connecting two separate Access databases. Can anyone tell me how to do this with VBA?

    Thanks,
    Tim
