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"
"Microsoft Binder 8.0 Object Library"
