Improved command line access
Could we have command line flags which:
\noautoexec - prevents any macro running on start-up
\table <tablename> opens on a specific table
\form <formname> - opens on a specific form
\report <reportname> opens on a specific report
The last three, obviously, being alternatives.
The Access shortcuts mentioned by Ben can be very useful for scheduled tasks.
In my opinion, the most useful new feature of this kind would be a NoShiftBypass option setting that would prevent anyone being able to disable the shift bypass externally. Obviously that can't be achieved from a command switch

I know this isn't really answering your question, but here's a tip that I bet a lot of people never knew.
If you select an Access object from the navigation pane and drag and drop it on your desktop, it will create a shortcut to that object. Clicking the shortcut will open MS Access and then open that object. I've known this for 15+ years but have never had a need for it.
Maybe in a pinch you can figure a way to have your batch file call START to launch the shortcut file. YMMV.
