The NewAccessProject method enables you to create a new Access project from within Microsoft Access or another application through Automation, formally called OLE Automation. For example, you can use the NewAccessProject method from Microsoft Excel to create a new Access project in the Access window. Once you have created an instance of Microsoft Access from another application, you must also create a new Access project. This Access project opens in the Microsoft Access window.

If the Access project identified by projname already exists, an error occurs.

The new Access project is opened under the Admin user account .

Note   To open an Access database (.mdb), use the NewCurrentDatabase method of the Application object.
