    MSChrt20 Reference (Access 2002 sp1)

    I have gotten to the testing phase of my application and I've moved it to a different computer than the one it was developed on. I am getting an error stating that the reference to MSChrt20 is missing. Sure enough, it is not on the new testbed system--an older system, more in line with that of my users. However, it is the same version of office.

    I think the culprit has to do with having VB 6.0 loaded on the first PC. I found some references to that in the knowledge base. How do I get around this? I have searched for the VB6 runtime files and could not locate them on the MS website. Do they exist? Surely I don't have to load VB6 on every PC I want my app to run on, do I?

    One of the reasons to avoid ActiveX controls is that they aren't necessarily on other machines and even if they exist, they may be a different version. VB6 runtime files wouldn't help you anyhow unless you were creating a VB6 executable, in which case you wouldn't be posting the question in Access. Access runtime files are something else altogether, and you only have the license to distribute those if you have the developer's edition of Office XP. If you are intending to use the MSChrt20.ocx in the application, you'll need to developer's version of Office and you'll need to create a setup that will install the application and the ocx on the users' machines.

    Charlotte--

    Thanks for the information. I'm not using this ActiveX control that I know of, so I just deleted the reference. We'll see iff there are any problems with it.
