The CreateAccessProject method enables you to create a new Access project from within Microsoft Access or another application through Automation, formally called OLE Automation. For example, you can use the CreateAccessProject method from Microsoft Excel to create a new Access project on disk. Once you have created an instance of Microsoft Access from another application, you must also create a new Access project.

If the Access project identified by projname already exists, an error occurs.

To create and open a new Access project as the current Access project in the Access window, use the NewAccessProject method of the Application object.

To open an existing Access project as the current Access project in the Access window, use the OpenAccessProject method of the Application object.

The following example creates a Microsoft Access project named "Order Entry.adp" on drive C.

Application.CreateAccessProject "C:\Order Entry.adp"
