    Button on a form to open a different database

    Hey guys,



    I'm sure this is super simple. I pretty much live in a "test" database that I have created, so I have been creating buttons to complete a bunch of my normal tasks. One of those tasks is to run a bonus program (located in another database). What would the code be to open a different database, and not closing the current one?
