Using Graphs on PC with Access 97 and Access 2000

P: n/a
I have an Access 97 database that has graphs installed on a PC with
both Office 97 and Office 2000. I know other people are aware of this
- the database automatically uses Graph 2000 instead of Graph 97. The
Graph objects in the database were automatically converted to Graph
2000 objects, even though they were created in Graph 97. This creates
huge problems with some of the reports that use complex graphs,
because the computer runs out of memory.

The 2 versions of Office are installed in different directories. I
even tried going into the database References, and specifying that the
Graph 8 Object Library be used, but the database still automatically
goes to use Graph 2000.

I am VERY reluctant to convert the database to Access 2000, because it
has some very torturous code that I'm not sure will convert properly,
and the database also uses some Access 97 specific libraries.

We have also had problems uninstalling Office 2000, and want to do
this only as a last resort.

Does anyone know of any way I can force Access 97 to use Graph 97?
