    Try the following:
    - Open the database with the Shift key held down, to bypass the startup options.
    - Activate the Visual Basic Editor (Alt+F11)
    - Select Tools | References...
    - There is probably at least one reference that starts with MISSING.
    - Make a note of the missing references, then clear their check boxes and click OK.
    - See if the database runs OK now.

    Hi Hans,

    Thanks for the quick response.

    I will give your suggestion a try as soon as I can pin down the user. She's been unavailable so far today. I'll let you know how it comes out.

    Thanks again...
