OLE Automation library - what's it for?

P: n/a
I've just removed a reference to Word OLB as I'm using late binding now.
I've got a reference to OLE Automation. What's that for then? Embedding
Excel objects in Access, Word objects in Access reports and such like?

I just removed the reference and everything worked. Not that I've got any
embedded objects. But my Word automation was fine, and using any of the
'Office Link' type things still worked. Though the users can't get at those
anyway, in this application.

I assume the 'bare minimum' of references is:

1. VBA
2. Access
3. DAO (or ADO)

I've got them in that order. Is there a better order?

TIA, Mike MacSween
