msbdr8.olb is the Binder 97 component

I dont think there is a Binder 2002 component, but there is a Binder 2000 component (msbdr9.olb)



Anyway, the solution should be this:

1.  View a code window (either code in a module or code behind a form)

2.  Tools menu -> References

3.  Look at which references are ticked.  You need to have a "binder" object ticked.

4.  Scroll down the list to get to the Microsoft  components

5.  Tick just one of these
"Microsoft Binder 9.0 Object Library"
or
"Microsoft Binder 8.0 Object Library"

P.S.   Also, after setting the new reference, do a
Debug -> Compile
(just to make sure the reference is fixed, or that there are no other missing references)
