Author(s)
Dev Ashish

(Q)    How do I quit Windows from Access?

(A)    Pass the function fTerminateWin one of the declared constants.

CAUTION: This function returns immediately and the shutdown proceeds in the background. Be sure to terminate your own application to help the shutdown proceed smoothly.
