If I can pass a command line argument into an MDE, how do I?

P: n/a
I have created an MDE file but I need it to run spacific updates at a certain time. I want windows schedule to run the mde at midnight with a command line argument to activate those functions. Can I do this, and if so how?

Thanks

Yes. Read up on the command-line options for msaccess.exe in the help
file. I believe it's the /x option.

If you're running this .mde application on a server you have to have a
user account on the server, other than the Administrators. The Job must
use that user account to run the Access application. If you try to
automatically run the Access application in the Administrator's account
Access will not run (actually, it opens & then closes).

I tried to automatically run an Access application in the
Administrator's account over-night & it failed. Read up on what may
have been causing the problem & decided the user's could run the
application instead of having it run automatically. :)
