Access 2003 2007 clash with object library

344 Recognized Expert Contributor
My collegue had to buy a new laptop that came with Office 2007 already installed.

She had Access 2003 installed on top, in a different directory.

None of our 2003 databases will run on her laptop, all giving the error
"Form Open- Event, property does not exist" or something like that.

This happens with every form. We can access the database, but not open any form. Going into a module of code, we can compile ok, no errors.

Checking references, when she is in Access 2003 she has
"Microsoft Access 12.0 Object Library"

On all our other PCs, without 2007, we have
"Microsoft Access 11.0 Object Library"

On her PC, searching references, I cannot see
"Microsoft Access 11.0 Object Library"

and it will not let me untick
"Microsoft Access 12.0 Object Library" saying this is in use.

Short of removing 2007, 2003 and re-installing 2003, does anyone know of a fix for this.

(Any kind of fix would have to be done remotely, i.e. over the telephone or via email, so RegEdit would NOT be a solution in this case)

My poor collegue has to prepare a major presentation on these databases in a weeks time, so I am hoping I can get her laptop working asap.

btw, there is no need, in this case, to use or preserve 2007, we dont need it.

TIA for any hints or help

Have you already set up your trusted locations?

I am really not sure if this will work, but it is definately worth a shot. I'm assuming that 2007 was installed on top, as you indicate, but a hastily made decision may have removed some prior Components. Provide your colleague with the Microsoft Access 11.0 Object Library. The file name is MSACC11.OLB and it normally resides in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\O ffice11 Directory by Default. Have your colleague copy it to the same location on her Laptop, then add it as a Reference via:
  1. Tools
  2. References
  3. Browse
  4. Select Library (MSACC11.OLB)
  5. Open
  6. OK
  7. The Microsoft Access 11.0 Object Library will hopefully now be added as a Reference. Try Opening the Form again.
P.S. - This approach, if it actually works, is only a band aide and is really not a viable solution to her problem.

Thanks ADezii,

I have asked her to check for that file (if she does not have it then I can email her it) and then we can try the above.

As a last resort I will uninstall 2007 and 2003, re-instal 2003 Access only, then 2007 without Access. (And in the meantime look to upgrading to 2007)

Just out of curiosity, I would like to know how you make out.

Got access to the laptop today and did the following.

Went into C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\O ffice12 and renamed MSACC.OLB to zzMSACC.OLB to get it out of the way, (thus crippling Access 2007)

Opened one of her databases with shift key down to stop startup and checked references, correct ref to "Microsoft Access 11.0 Object Library" was present and database worked.

Tried a 2nd database and it all fell over. Had to log in with shift key and check refs on THAT database.

Now all works.

Obviously this is only a patch but as I do not have the Office 2003 or 2007 CDs I can't do a complete removal and install in the correct order.

(2003 cds are in Africa, and, as usual these days, the supplier of the new laptop did not supply any CDs)

Hi, In my office I have Office 2003 on the PC. I created an Access application which has a component reference to Microsoft Office 12.0 Object Library. The problem that I am having now it that in my home PC I also have Office 2003, but I only have Microsoft Office 11.0 Object Library in it and not Microsoft Office 12.0 Object Library, so the application does not work right.

Hi !! I'm about to develop a new project for a client. Should I go about it in Access 2003 or 2007 ? Purchasing it either for me or for my client is not a major consideration here ... what I'd like to know is the stability, speed & ease of use of both the products. I believe Access 2007 has a new file format too and that it may be slower.
