Access 2000 to 2003 conversion missing reference and freezing errors

I am in the midst of trying to convert about 25 Access 2000 to Access 2003.
The new environment consists of Office/Access 2003 and Outlook 2003. When
converting the back ends I have no problems. When converting the front ends
I get the following issues and error. If I try to import all the objects
into a blank Access 2003 shell I get a missing reference error for Outlook
2000, Excel 2000, and Word 2000 or after importing all the objects Access
2003 just freezes with the Importing Objects box open. If I open the Access
2000 database in Access 2003 and try to convert I get the missing reference
error for Outlook 2000, Excel 2000, and Word 2000 and it won't convert. I
found that I have to open all the databases in Access 2000 and remove the
Outlook 2000, Excel 2000, and Word 2000 references, convert, and then add
the references to Outlook 2003, Excel 2003, and Word 2003.

Everything I read in these groups say that I should be able to simply import
all my objects into a blank Access 2003 shell or open and convert. Any idea
why I am experiencing these issues. Is there an easier way to go about this.
Any help would be welcome.

Markco

Most apps convert fine becuse they don't have references set to Outlook, Excel,
and Word. Do you really need those? You would be better off using late binding
and eliminating those external references.

I would have setup this code to only be a few subroutines so it's very easy to deal
with and find. In which case this would only be a few or ten minutes to convert
each subroutine.

That shouldn't be happening. And you didn't mention that on your original posting.
This gets more complicated

But even then importing object by object shouldn't be necessary. In A2003 open the
database >Tools >Database Utilities >Convert Database >To Access 2003 or 2003
format. Then remove the old references and add the new references.

Tony,
Thank you once again for your help. My department is just 2 people with a
very large work load. That being said our goal is to get this code changed
as soon as possible but it will not be possible before the scheduled
completion date for migration.

Best Regards,
Markco

I have been using Access97 for some time now and decided to upgrade to 2000, the problem is when I convert it to 2000 I get the following message "There were compilation errors during the conversion" it looks like it is due to the DAO 2.5/3.5 reference. Is there a conversion utility that I can run to convert it to DAO 3.6 to run in Access 2000 There seems to be a lot of changes required in the module where it is using
