If you use the FollowHyperlink method to link to an object in the same Microsoft Access database, and you set the newwindow argument to True, the object will not appear in a new instance of Microsoft Access. The object will instead appear in the current window.
The newwindow argument of the FollowHyperlink method has no effect on links to Microsoft Access objects. If the object to which you are linking is in the same Microsoft Access database, the object will always appear in the current window. Conversely, if the object to which you are linking is in another database, the object will appear in a new window as another instance of Microsoft Access. In either case, setting the newwindow argument in the FollowHyperlink method to True or False has no effect.

Sub Test() Application.FollowHyperlink "","Form Categories",True End Sub
- To test this procedure, type the following line in the Debug window, and then press ENTER:
