I am getting the error:
Automation type not supported in Visual Basic.

I never used to get the error but now that I have formatted my computer I am starting to get it in when referencing the Access 9 object:

Dim appAccess As Access.application

if I use :

Dim appAccess As Object

there is no problem...
why does this happen and how can I fix it?

You should try a total reinstall of Office 2000 to see if that solves the problem.
