MS Access 97 runtime on Office 2000 Win98 platform.
None of the unbound date text boxes will work in the forms where default value for an unbound text box is date(); the text box shows "#name?" (and is never set from code--a simple set up.) I have checked all simple options in help etc.
Works fine on my test machine and unfortunately I don't have access to the remote machines; the problem only occurs with Office 2000 (5 instances but not all installations) not Office 97 (100s of installations and 0 instances) but I haven't figured out what is unique in the situation and cannot replicate it.
I wonder if it is to do with expression service dll registration being messed up during Office 2000 upgrade but cannot find the correct spot in the registry to check. All my registry entries for vba332.dll are the same as the problem machine. I'm also wondering about licensing of a dll being damaged.
Dates throughout the application fail for these installations.
Many thanks (perhaps I will be able to offer more points as I get them)
