Coding VB.NET to open an MS Access Form

P: n/a
Is it possible to code to a VB.NET windows form button to open a Microsoft
Access Form? If so, which namespace(s)/class(es) would I use in doing the
coding?

Are there any good reference books that talk about opening application
programs from within VB.NET? (or is this either not possible, in general, or
just not a good idea?)

Thanks for any info

You can use 'System.Diagnostics.Process.Start' or 'Shell' to start a new
process from your VB.NET application.
