Getting the version of Office (Access), if installed
Posted on 2002-07-04
How can I get the version of an installed MS Office, if it exists, that is...
Up to now I'm checking the following reg key exists, assuing this will only be there if office is installed:
I've seen some other answers to this question in PAQs, but I'm not going to accept those answers if they are re-submitted for my question.
(assuming there's already a this line of code: "Dim A as Access.Application")
Checking A.Version doesnt work - there is no version property of that object.
Checking A.CurrentDB.Version - nope!, there has to be a database open and I can't open it if they have Access 97 (which is why I want this version checker :)
I think that's all... thanks! :)
