Automation Error in Access XP

P: n/a
Can anyone help me with an "Automation Error" I am receiving in Access
XP? I am using the Combo Box wizard to create a combo box on a simple
form and receive the following error "Automation Error. The specified
procedure could not be found." I get this error right after I select
the fields I want to see and upon clikcing NEXT to go to the next
screen (should be where I can change the width of the columns), I get
this error. It doesnt let me go any further.

THANK YOU!!

Sounds like the db is corrupted. Try Compact & Repair. If that doesn't
work create a new db file & copy all the object in the old db into the
new. That sometimes clears up the corruption issue. Otherwise, it
might be the wizard db that is messed up. In that case try reinstalling
the wizards.
