How to Copy Reference's?

Greetings,
I have a module that copies a 13.5 meg Access Fornt-end which has a MS SQL backend. This module breaks the links and saves the table info, along with the modules, forms, queries, etc into a standalone .mdb. All of the objects are copied.
My problem is I have an application that needs a refrenece to OLE and Word 8.0 objects and some ActiveX controls and the references aren't copied over.  

If it's not possible to copy the references any other ideas would be appreciated. I just don't want to have to add the reference manually each day.

Thanks,
Brad Hummel

Make sure whatever you copy is compiled, then it should take the references with it. We find the only time references do not get copied from one machine to another is when the contents of the database or module are not compiled.

Each module is compiled and so is each sub that uses the Word 8.0 Objects. I physically went into each module and compiled them. I think that was overkill but i wanted to be sure. Any other ideas?

Thanks,
Brad
