MS Access - adding Utility.mdb

I need to know how to install utility.mda (needed by MS ACCESS)?  We tried by going into ACCESS and using the add-in manager.  When we select utility.mda for "activiation" it is added to the available list (with an X next to it indicating it is to be installed).  However, when we close (the only way to exit the add-in manager) -- the add-in is not made active.  We know this because:
      1.  sendkeys (an MS ACCESS macro capabilty) continues
          to complain that the utility add-in needs to be installed
      2.  when we go back into the add-in manager, the utility
          add-in in no longer in the available list?
 We have uninstalled  and reinstalled Access with all available option but the problem still presists.

Can you please help?

Thanks
Sirak

The Utility.MDA is referenced in the MSACC20.INI file [Options]
SystemDB=C:\ACCESS20\system.mda
UtilityDB=C:\ACCESS20\utility.mdaIn Access 95/97 it's in the Registry[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\8.0\Access\Options]
"UtilityDB"="C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\Office\\utility.mda"
Hope this helps!Chris!

I checked the setting in the registry as you suggested and everything matches but on the line [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\8.0\Access\Options instead of ...\OFFICE\8.0\ACCESS I HAVE "...\OFFICE\7.0\ACCESS.

First of all, ignore the 7.0/8.0 thing in the registry.  If you are referencing a valid Utility.mda in the UtilityDB Key of the Registry, then Utility.MDA is loadingI still don't know why you are trying to install Utility.MDA, since Access does it for you.If you want, e-mail me.ChrisChris@TAYLORMGMT.COM
