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 )

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

Good Luck,
