Visual Basic module reports cant find project or library for Trim on autoexec

Im using Access 2000 and trying to fix a problem in a function called during autoexec.

The function uses Trim and throws the error "cant find project or library". Which seems fairly silly. Is this a known problem? can anyone offer any suggestions.

This isnt my database so I dont have a complete history of its development. Trim and Left etc. all work once the database has started.

Update: None of the string functions such as Left, Right, Trim Ltrim Rtrim seem to be working. Strangely, Len is.

Check for "MISSING" indicator in Tools/References while any code module is open.  Unchecking the MISSING item and then adding it back will usually fix the problem.  The problem is caused, typically, by a DLL/OCX that is of a different version than the one used on the development machine.

Also, if any of those functions are being used in a VBA routine, you can force them to work by explicitly calling them from the VBA object:

VBA.Left()
VBA.Right()

etc.

Just a small addition, access will add libraries when you add a new item from the toolbox. When you remove that item (often an .ocx), access leaves the library checked...
This will normally cause no problems, until you move the application to another computer or remove some "obsolete" .ocx files.

Personally I remove all checked libraries one by one and run a "compile all modules" after each uncheck to see or everything still works. If not, I just check that library again...
