References in vba

P: n/a
Hello everybody:

I'd like to know what references in my vba code are used or not.

I work in a code made by another person previously, i founded to many
references and i believe that someones are not used.

I'd like to optimize the application ereasing the useless references.

Thanks a lot.

What version of Access? * Are you using ADO or DAO or both?

Do you have any references besides the basic three? *Are you sure you need them?
Write down the path and name of the extra ones (or put the following code in a module
and execute the code), delete from the references list and Compile and Save All.
Keep any necessary references and ensure they are distributed to the target system.

Dim ref As Reference

* * For Each ref In Access.References
* * * * Debug.Print ref.Name & " " & ref.FullPath & " " & ref.Major & "." & ref.Minor
* * Next ref

For a very detailed page on reference problems seehttp://www.accessmvp.com/djsteele/AccessReferenceErrors.html

Ctrl+G will take you into the Debug/Immediate window. *Then click on
Tools on the menu bar and References.

The Access 97 default references are:
Visual Basic for Applications
Microsoft Access 8.0 Object Library
Microsoft DAO 3.5x Object Library

The Access 2000 default references are:
Visual Basic for Applications
Microsoft Access 9.0 Object Library
OLE Automation
Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.1 Library
* or
Microsoft DAO 3.6 Object Library

The Access 2002 default references when the MDB is created in Access
2000 format are:
Visual Basic for Applications
Microsoft Access 10.0 Object Library
OLE Automation
Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.1 Library

The Access 2002 default references when the MDB is created in Access
2002 format are:
Visual Basic for Applications
Microsoft Access 10.0 Object Library
OLE Automation
Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.5 Library.

The Access 2003 default references when the MDB is in A2000 format are
Visual Basic for Applications
Microsoft Access 11.0 Object Library
OLE Automation
Microsoft DAO 3.6 Object Library
Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.1 Library

The Access 2003 default references when the MDB is in A2002/A2003 format are
Visual Basic for Applications
Microsoft Access 11.0 Object Library
OLE Automation
Microsoft DAO 3.6 Object Library

Remove one. Click Compile. (It's under the debug heading). Problem? Reset
the reference.

Remove another one. Click Compile. No problem? Keep on truckin'.
