CloseDatabase Macro Action

You can use the CloseDatabase action to close the current database.

Note: The CloseDatabase macro action is not available in Access web apps.


The CloseDatabase action does not have any arguments.


  • Access will not run any actions that follow the CloseDatabase action in a macro.

  • This action has the same effect as clicking File > Close. If there are any unsaved objects open when you run the CloseDatabase action, the dialog boxes that appear are the same as those displayed when you click Close.

  • To run the CloseDatabase action in a Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) module, use the CloseDatabase method of the DoCmd object.
