I am trying to link an access database directly to individual polygons or
points (PGDB) in Arcmap, that is when opened the Access link would open
Archmap and then zoom to the polygons or points individual coordinate
assigned to that link.
Thank you

If there is a way to "zoom to coordinates" when you open Arcview from the
Command Line, you can use that with the SHELL function.

If you can control Arcview through COM Automation, then you could learn its
object model and programming and open it via Automation and manipulate its
objects from within Access.

I can open Access from a Hyperlink in Arcview
that is linked to site specific data, but when I try the opposite way I
can only get Arcview to load a Mxd that is a generic with no specified
zoom linking the data in access with individual polygon locations.

I will give it a go!

Thanks
