What owc10.dll does?

P: n/a
Hello

Does anyone know what owc10.dll does?
In Access XP is a reference by default to owc10.dll. I know is
'Office Web Components' or something like this.
I'm asking this because after applying Office XP SP3 on the
development computer and deploying to users of Access XP without SP3
applied, or users of Access 2003 without SP1, there are some errors
like

- '?Name' instead of current date (I use Date()function),
- 'Function not available' and other errors.

I can't force all users of Access XP to apply SP3 or all users of
Access 2003 to apply SP1.

It is ok if I uncheck this reference?
I don't use 'Data Access Pages' in my apps.

Thank you very much for your time!

Office Web Components is used with web applications to create Excel
spreadsheets, charts and other things. I can't imagine why you would
use this with MS Access. I believe that you can uncheck the reference.

Unless you know your application needs this reference then you can almost
certainly remove it (and any other extra ones). Uncheck the box and then
select Debug>Compile to make sure the code is fully compiled. It will not
compile if the references are needed.
Of course if you are unsure or in doubt, work on a copy first.
