CloseDatabase Macro Action

Office 2007

You can use the CloseDatabase action to close the current database.


The CloseDatabase action does not have any arguments.


  • Access will not run any actions that follow the CloseDatabase action in a macro.
  • This action has the same effect as clicking the Microsoft Office ButtonButton image and then clicking Close Database. If there are any unsaved objects open when you run the CloseDatabase action, the dialog boxes that appear are the same as those displayed when you click Close Database.
  • To run the CloseDatabase action in a Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) module, use the CloseDatabase method of the DoCmd object.
