I am trying to launch microsoft access.exe and have know errors but also no result with opening access. Does anyone know how to do this. I am using ArcDesktop ten with latest service pack and have python 2.6 installed. 

import os
os.spawn("c:\programs files\Microsoft office\office12\msaccess.exe")
