Access 2003 mde or mdb will not work with Access Runtime

P: n/a
I checked all my references prior to compiling. The mdb or mde works
perfectly with full version of A2003.

When running on a computer with RunTime i receive an error that a
reference is broken to msoutl.olb version 9.2.

Can anyone shed some light on this as I need to deploy this application
as soon as possible. Any information regarding this would be greatly
appreciated.

Regards,

Lar

Use late binding and make sure Outlook 2000 is installed on the computer. Be
aware that some things might not work right because of the different versions
of Office you're trying to mesh together.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Outlook (Office for that matter) 2000 is installed on the computer I am
installing A2003 runtime on with my mde. file. Additionaly , I noticed
that my form is producing all sorts of error messages utilizing the
runtime. (command buttons and comboboxes.) Also for a date field
receiving a $Name#.... error in a text box.

What is late binding and how can I use it? I was under the impression
that as long as you point the mde to A2003 /runtime all should be
fine..... I've used runtime A2000 with no problems. I just don't
understand. Appears all my references are correct.

Would greatly appreciate any addtional advice you have...

The suggestion being offered is while looking at code, go tools->references.

You want to remove any stray references. Likely that mso ref you have is
also in that list...remove it.

So, remove any and all garbage references. If you have any defences to
outlook, or word, or excel, etc, you WANT TO REMOVE THEN ALSO, AND USE LATE
BINDING!

Late binding is expalined here:

That means you have at least one missing library reference.

Different versions of office are often located in differently named directory
paths. Libraries are hard coded in MDE files so if one of the libraries on
the Access 2003 computer used to create the MDE had the path C:\Program Files\
Microsoft Office\OFFICE11 and that same file on the Office 2000 computer used
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE9, the MDE file won't find the
library file, even though it exists in a similarly named directory (OFFICE9
vs OFFICE11).

Late binding means you don't add the library to your references collection
but when you need a specific library in your code, you declare a variable as
an object type and set the variable to the appropriate library object at
runtime.

Dim olk as Object

You'll find examples of the syntax and more explanations by googling:

I ensured that the path to execute the A2003 mde is correct and it does
open.... Can I use the reference "Microsoft Outlook 11 Library" on the
computer that has Office 2000, but no Access... This seems kind of
weird to me. Would I have to reference Microsoft Outlook 9 Library if
they are using Outlook 2000? and if so, will it even compile?

If all computers using your app don't have the same software installed
(including the version) for the libraries you want to use code from then you
MUST use late binding so you don't have to use references. Late binding will
usually not care about the version.

No, don't set a reference to Outlook in the references window. In your code
use late binding by declaring a variable as an Object that at runtime will be
set to an Outlook application object like this:

Dim olk as Object
Set olk = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
' do stuff.
Set olk = Nothing

If Outlook is installed on the computer the OS will create an instance of
Outlook, regardless of which version it is.

Thanks for the reply... I understand.

I am using DAO.. when I load my form I get an #NAME? error on a date

Do you need exact error messages?

If an MDE works correctly on some computers but shows #NAME? on others, it
means there is VBA code or a built in function being used in the application
and at least one of the library references can't be resolved on the computers
that show #NAME?. You *must* resolve these references. The best way to do
that is to *only* use the built in references:

VBA
MS Access (version#) Object library
DAO and/or ADO

and use late binding for *all* other library objects. You have example
syntax for Outlook and if you need to use late binding for other applications
like Excel, the syntax is nearly identical:

Dim xl as Object
Set xl = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
' do stuff.
Set xl = Nothing
Do you need exact error messages?
Once you resolve the references you shouldn't have any other error messages,
but if you do please post them.

Broken references break a LOT of stuff that has nothing to do with the

Again thanks for the help.

I am new to OOP and need a little advise (example) how to set and dim
Outlook.MailItem and Outlook.Attachement. If you could provide me with
one example of this, I'm confident I can figure the rest out.

Also, if Outlook is open I use the GetObject and if not I use the
CreateObject, yes?
Really appreciate the help.

If there's a missing reference none of the VBA code can execute.

With late binding the code can still compile.

You use generic object variables.
Also, if Outlook is open I use the GetObject and if not I use the
CreateObject, yes?
CreateObject is how you initialize the Outlook instance, assigning
it to a generic object variable.

Dim objOutlook As Object

Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

(I'm making up the name used to initialize it, since I don't know
what it really should be)

Then all properties and methods of objOutlook will be the same as
those you saw with the reference still in place.

Values assigned to variables should use the appropriate variable
type. That is, if the Outlook property returns a string or a number,
use the appropriate type. If it returns an Outlook-specific data
type, then you use either a Variant or an Object -- it depends on
the circumstances.

For instances, members of a collection would get assigned to Variant
types if you're using your variable in a For/Each loop. I'm not
exactly sure where the dividing line between Variant and Object
variables should be drawn, though. I think I know it when I see it,
but I've never done enough Outlook programming (nor recently) to
give advice on that.

Dim olMailItem As Variant

OR

I'm not sure which is more appropriate.

The point is: you need to use pure Access data types, and none of

References are like apples: one bad one can spoil the whole barrel.

That means, you may see errors in some other library whose Reference is
perfectly valid, rather than the one that is Missing.

I have no address book for the same reason on my home computers, but I have

inconvenient.

I have an address list, just not in a place where the malware would easily
be able to make use of it.
