Here in our shop we own the ODE Tools which come with Office97 Developer Edition.

(Start Button\Programs\Microsoft Office\Microsoft ODE Tools\Setup Wizard

Or with Windows NT Server or Windows NT Workstation (v 3.51), open the Microsoft ODE Tools program group in Program Manager, and then double-click the Setup Wizard icon.)

Instructions are available in Access Help under "ODE" and then "Setup Wizard".

(this Question was asked also in http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qShow.jsp?ta=msaccess&qid=10212161 )

If you don't have the ODE Tools, then I don't have an Answer.

Good Luck,

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.  Also a question is posted there specific to these changes that apply to the experts here.  Also, I am including the link to our All Topics, since many new ones have recently been added.
