Fix for broken linked table manager

P: n/a
I've just performed a reformat and reinstalled Access 2000 and 2003 and
as usual the linked table manager in Access 2003 is broken ie. it
doesn't show any tables. I've gone through the process of
re-registering Accwiz.dll as outlined in the MS Knowledge Base and
although this process has worked for me before, it hasn't worked this
time. There are still no tables showing.

The article in the knowledge base includes this line: "If the previous
method does not resolve this problem, examine the following registry
value data to see if the value data is pointing to the correct
Accwiz.dll file in Access 2003." Trouble is there's nothing after it to
reveal which registry value that needs to be checked.

Does anyone know what the registry value is or of any other way to get
the tables showing again in the linked table manager?

Wayne,

For Access 2003 you need to use:

regsvr32 "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\ACCWIZ.DLL"

Note the accwiz.dll is not in the WINDOWS/System32 directory in this
instance.

Regards
SB.

Thanks for the reply Scott, but it's still broken. When I register the
dll, Windows tells me that it registered successfully, but still no
linked tables showing. I've reinstalled Access 2003 to no avail.
