Microsoft gives the following reason for this error:

OLE Automation Error 440, an error that occurs when an OLE Automation server times out or is not ready to accept a particular command

To debug the error, first try removing your Form-open code and see if the form opens OK without any code running.  If so, you should then step through the code as the form opens and make note of any commands that take a long time to run.

In this way you can identify where the form is timing out.

A second option would be to try to re-install Access--this was given as a possible solution on the Microsoft site.

Good luck!
