MID function - Helicopter welcomed

I read through a fix for a problem with the MID function...

http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qShow.jsp?ta=msaccess&qid=10096243 &search=

I have the exact same problem...

The MID function works fine in first Access file, but it does not on the second (I get the "Can't Find Project or Library" error message) and this occurs on the same PC.

The second Access file is one that I trade between me and my client, so it made sense to re-link the "project library" (or whatever it's called).

Problem is, the path and filenames for the selected VBA332.dll is the same, and if I go through and "re-connect" it, I still get the error.

Another issue here is that I'm on an NTWorkstation PC, my client is on W98, but as I said, the path and filename's are the same.

Is there another troubleshooting step I can take? Hope this didn't get confusing.

Thanks, Ian

Some thoughts:
1) Are the versions of both .dll's the same ? (If not use highes number on both machines)
2) Did you try to create a new .mdb  and import all objects in it. It's often that Access gets cluttered up and by this method you have a real clean database. After importing check the references again.

Sometimes it is necessary to *remove* the references, close Access, re-open Access, and re-set the references.

A little more info, though I'm not sure it offers more than is already here:

A few years ago I did have to manually register VBA332.dll on a machine to get it to cooperate.  Nothing else would work.

You would think that MS would make it easier to upgrade office suites without causing all kinds of errors.

Are you sure it's the VBA332 file that you are missing?  On the machine that's not working Click  Tools | References and see if any of the references says "Missing" in front of it.  I had a database that bombed out on a date function because my customer had updated to NT and didn't have the COMDLG file in the right path.

Mach1pro,

It is less than polite, when several people already have been working with the 'asker,' to jump in with a 'Proposed Answer' like this.  

Would you be so kind as to convert your 'Answer' to a 'Comment,' like everybody else?

Thanks

Brian

Hey fellas,

I'm sorry I've been out of touch. I went with nico5038's advice and got through my mess. Nico never posted his info as a proposed answer... I should've pursued. Nico, propose your comment as an answer and I'll give you my points! Sorry (to all of you) for being a slacker.
