Default library files for a project

P: n/a
Is there anywhere that I can alter the default reference library files for
my access project. Every time I make a new database container for my
development, I get stuck with the same group of dll's in the References. I
then have to delete one of them and select two other dlls from a long way
down the list. Surely there is somewhere I can create a set of default
reference libraries for my project.

Create a default MDB with the references you want, with the style and colors
you want in the Normal forms and reports that will be used as a pattern,
etc., then copy that default MDB as the basis for new projects. If you use
very similar Splash screens, Switchboards, and a goody-box of common code,
you can include all those, too. Saves a lot of work to do it this way.

You can work with the library references yourself. I have some code which runs
whenever I open up several of my MDBs when in A2000 which remove a superfluous
reference. The extra reference is placed there when I programmatically convert the
MDB from A97.

I used the code at the following URL as a starting point.
