Common Dialgue / windows common controls in refernces

P: n/a
ARC
Another Access 97 to Access 2000 question. In the references section of my
access 97 .mde, I'm using the Microsoft Common Dialog controls 6.0 and the
Microsoft Windows Common Controls 5.0. After converting to access 2000,
these are still present in the references section. Should I still be using
these with access 2000, or is there a better replacement?

Thanks!

You should have never been using them. They are terrible for verisioning
problems when deploying to multiple PCs. Use the API methods found at the
link below.

How do you get rid of troublesome ActiveX Controls/references?
