How do you deal with multiple versions of Outlook?

P: n/a
On a local network, I have OFF2K and OFF XP.

When I set it up, it was with XP and required Outlook library v10. Of
course, it fails when open on a workstation with v9.

Is there a way at db opening (1) to recognize what version is
installed and (2) to activate the proper reference.

I remembered about CDO v1.21. I gave a try to the method explained on
mvps.org/access, but I keep getting a message and if CDO is not on
each workstation, I will have problems as well.

TIA.

Do a Google search on the topic "Late Binding". If you manipulate Outlook with
Late Binding no reference is required and your code is (for the most part)
version independent.

Rick,

Is that also true with Excel, Word and PowerPoint?
