    OWC10.dll error (XP and 2003)

    I created a database for a client of mine, created in XP and they were using XP. They have since updated to Office 2003. I copied the "front end" from their office to make some changes. When I installed it on my computer (Office XP) to make some changes, now I'm getting an error message that says "...database or project contains a missing or broken reference to the fille 'OWC10.dll' version 1.1. Seems to be connected to the Switchboard.

    OWC is Office Web Components.
    Try the following:
    - Activate the Visual Basic Editor (Alt+F11)
    - Select Tools | References...
    - If there are references starting with MISSING, note their names, then clear their check boxes.
    - Click OK.
    - Try Debug | Compile <projectname> to see if the problem has been solved.

    I did as you suggested yesterday. The "Available References" says I'm missing "Microsoft Office XP Web Components". How do I get this?

    Do you really need it? I would try clearing the check box for this reference. Chances are your database will work OK then. If not, tell us where Debug | Compile <projectname> raises an error.

    I did as you suggested and un-checked the "Missing:..." in References. So far so good?????
    Thank you very much
