Hi Sinistral

I am now trying to open using this code
$oDatabase = $oAccess->DBEngine->OpenCurrentDatabase($filename);
It says invalid argument.Do we need to provide other arguments also.

With this code $oDatabase = $oAccess->DBEngine->OpenDatabase($filename);

It opens fine but the custom properties doesnot get added to the file's custom tab in the database properties.
Is there any difference between OpenDatabase and OpenCurrentDatabase.
my $filename = 'C:\Documents and Settings\551970\Desktop\database.accd +b'; # $ARGV[0]; print $filename."\n"; $oAccess = Win32::OLE->new('Access.Application') or die qq{Couldn't st +art new Access instance!}; # Open Access File $oDatabase = $oAccess->DBEngine->OpenDatabase($filename); my $new_property = $oDatabase->Containers->Databases->Documents->User +Defined->CreateProperty("Test1",12,"Test"); $oDatabase->Containers->Databases->Documents->UserDefined->Propertie +s->Append($new_property); foreach (in $oDatabase->Containers->Databases->Documents->UserDefined- +>Properties) { #print Dumper($_); print "prop ".$_->Name."\n"; } undef $oDatabase; #undef $oAccess; $oAccess->Quit();

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
