Can you help on this one?

Access Problem

User was trying to write a PDF to an access field and got the error:
You don't have the license required to use this ActiveX control.  You tried to open a form containing an OLE object or an ActiveX control or you tried to create an ActiveX control.  To obtain the appropriate licnse, contact the company that provides the licensed OLE object or ActiveX control.

What does this error mean?

Basically, you don't have a license!  If you purchase a control, then you should have a license.  Some free controls give you a license.  HOWEVER, some controls you have a license for are not properly registered or you are missing a .lic file.

If you merely copy an active X control that requires a license, it won't work -- you have to run the setup program.  Sometimes just reinstalling works.

Microsoft has more info at http://www.microsoft.com  (use the search function).

We have Office 97 Professional installed.
Does it come with any controls or are they extra?

Where do we go to purchase a control?

GREETINGS!

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.

This is the Community Support link, if help is needed, along with the link to All Topics which reflects many TAs recently added.  Also in the Community Support link is a question on how experts can help, if they wish, on the cleaning of old and abandoned questions.
