    MISSING references (VB6/Word 2000/SR-1)

    Hi,

    I have AutoOpen and AutoClose macros set up in each file of a group of files that a workgroup accesses. Yesterday, we started having VB compile problems with some of these files. We traced the problem to a MISSING reference that pointed at a temporary file in the Windows 2000 Cocuments and SettingsNAMELocal SettingsTemp directory of a particular user.

    I know that unclicking that MISSING reference will fix things; does anyone know how to keep the MISSING reference from being created in the first place?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Looks like the library file on the development PC is not in the same location on the production PC.

    Are you saying that the library references that were set up when the macros were created might not be valid on the problem PC? The MISSING reference that I'm encountering seems to be spontaneously created on the problem PC.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    A missing reference indicates a library file referred to in code is not accessible on disk. So, your problem PC has a problem and the problem is it's missing the .dll, ocx, or whatever that your code is looking for.
