The command prompt window should close automatically. I'm not sure why you had to force it to close. What did you add to the script?

Code:
start "" "%userprofile%\Desktop\Quotations.accdr"
I just added the start argument to it. Otherwise the command prompt window wouldnt close until you closed Access.

Ah, that explains it. For those who love dichotomies, there are two ways to start a process under Windows. You can create a child process or you can create an independent process. You wait for children because technically, they are a part of your main process. You don't have to wait for independents because they have a separate life of their own.
