You can close an open database interactively or programmatically.
To close a database
Perform one of the following:
In the Project Manager, if the node for the database is expanded, collapse the node.
In the Project Manager, click the name of the open database, and then Close.
In the Database Designer, close the designer window.
The database closes.
- In the Project Manager, if the node for the database is expanded, collapse the node.
To close a database programmatically
Use the CLOSE DATABASES command.
For more information, see CLOSE Commands.
|Using CLOSE DATABASES in the Command window does not close a database if the database was opened in the Project Manager by expanding its node or when a form is running in its own data session. Under these circumstances, the database remains open until it is closed in Project Manager or until the form using the database closes.|
