How can I go to specified entry from a Windows shell command ?

P: n/a
I want to link objects from a GIS program with their specific form in
MS-Access. To do that, I have to find a shell command (like "C:\Program
Files\Office\Access.exe" -<parameter ie number of the entry>) which make
Access recognize the number of the entry I want to go. Is it possible, or is
it too simple ?
(I want to use such a method cause like you could imagine, I don't have
sufficient knowledges in programmation to do it in a more complex way.)

You'll need to check this out with the help file on command line
arguments but I think it's something like
<path>\msaccess.exe <database.mdb> /cmd <your argument here>

Assuming you have a startup form or an autoexec macro, then a call to a
VBA routine can check the "command$" system variable to see what was
passed, what you do with that value is then up to you.
