API Call to open windows dialog box Access 2003

P: n/a
Ian
I have an Access 2003 database that uses a Windows API call to open the
windows dialog box (originally taken from the Ken Getz code many years
ago), this has always worked just fine.

After a Office Auto Update last week to Office 2003 this code stopped
working, when I click the button on the form nothing happens at all, no
dialog box. I removed the latest update to Office and it works again.

How can I stop this from being a problem to other users? Is there some
API call to open the windows dialog box that works with the latest
update to Access 2003?

Ian,

I've used the same code you mention for years, and have used it many times,
successfully, with Access 2003. I got my copy from
http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0001.htm. I suspect you need to take a
careful look at where and how you are using it, and any differences from the
posted copy that you may have inserted, deleted, or modified.
