problem with OLE server or activex control

P: 1
How are you every body
I am the user of MS ACCESS 2003
I am trying to use this software for a certain database using PDF file and
word file as OLE object as one component of the database field.
After making the database table and try to find some information from this fild;
When I am clicking into word field (of the OLE object) it opens everything ;picture as well as words in that file.But when I am clicking on PDF file of the OLE onject it says;
" A problem occured while microsoft acess was communicating with the OLE server or activex control,
Close the OLE server and restart it outside of micosoft acess .Then try the original operation in MS ACESS."
what is the OLE server? Where can I find it? and How can I solve this problem?

I know little about this, but I think I know what it's referring to by OLE server.

That is whichever program is associated with the item you've linked.

So, for a .Doc it would be MS Word, but for a .Pdf it would be Adobe Reader (or whatever version you may be using).

For some reason, you posted this same question twice. I have removed the other copy for you.

Please try not to do that in future.
