Adding a Quit to a Macro using Visual Basic

P: n/a
I have a number of databases which are linked to one central datastore.
When we are running updates on the central store we remove a 'false' value
in the autoexecs of all the related databases which causes them to quit. We
currently do this manually which can be a bit annoying....is there a way to
do it automatically?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

John

Search this newsgroup for the "KickEmOff" (or "KickEmOut") routine.
It's not exactly what you're asking for, but it works _really_ well,
and it's used by quite a number of people.

If memory serves, Arvin Meyer first posted it here in CDMA sometime in
1999 or 1998.
