I have a user that was upgraded from win95 to win98.  Now there are certain libraries my code is not recognizing. My references match.  I browsed through the control panel, under OBDC connection, and under the pooling, Microsoft Access 97 was not being pooled.  Could this be a problem???

What version of MS Access was on the Win95 PC? Did you upgrade the database version to MS Access 97 also?

Is this a C++/Delphi/VB application that is interfacing with the database?

If you have upgraded to MS Access 97 on the machine and the above application question is yes then you probably need to recompile your application on a machine that has MS Access 97 installed on it.

The database was originally in Access 97 (there were no upgrades on the database).  The only thing that changed was the user. he's now running win98 instead of win95.  All my other users have win95.  i'm stumped.  My code is VBA!!!

What kind of errors are you getting? You say your code isn't recognizing some of your libraries. Perhaps if you provided message information etc. we can help you.......

The message that pops up is "Can't find project or library".  It pops straight into my code and highlights the word FORMAT in my code.  I thought it may be my references but they match up between versions...

Try reinstalling MS Access 97 on the machine.

You can get exact idea of what you're missing if you run the debugger.  In the module editor, select References, it will identify what libaries are used.  In front of one of them at least you'll see the word MISSSING.  That is what you're missing. It will tell you what files are missing.

Most like it's in the C:\Program Files\...\Microsft Shared\DAO folder. Then it's a matter of copying the contents of that folder from a working machine to the PC in question.

Good luck.
