    Missing VBA6.DLL

    After a hard drive crash I installed access 2000 again and got the message file not found vba6.dll every time i opened a database. I tried uninstall and re install with no luck.
    does anyone know where i can find this DLL and what folder it goes in when i find it.
    I'm running access 200 on ME
    thanks

    Re: Missing VBA6.DLL

    The error message is referencing the MS Office 97 library, not the VBA library. If you upgraded Office or if this is a new machine that never had 97 on it, you may not have this library any more. That one you can fix by changing the reference to the MS Office 9 library. The VBA6.dll is part of Visual Studio/Visual Source Safe. If you don't need it for anything, just uncheck the reference.

    Re: Missing VBA6.DLL

    Thanks for your reply Charlotte
    I tried removing the references
    i removed every one it would let me
    still no good
    so i uninstalled 2000 installed 97 then reinstalled 2000 again
    still no good
    so i converted the database to 97
    worked fine
    converted back to 2000 and now the database works just like it did before the crash
    many thanks to you Charlotte and to you Rupert
    your help is appreciated more than you could know i just wish i really knew what happened
    i'm thinking something got corrupted in the database but don't know for sure
    thanks again
