MS ACCESS 2003 - Substitute for ActiveX Control (Microsoft Common Dialog Control Verson 6.0)

I have been using the above ActiveX Control (Microsoft Common Dialog Control Verson 6.0)
in my application for a open a file. It was working under MS Access'97,
but for some reason under MS Access 2003 that ActiveX control is not available.

I looked in the ActiveX controls and it isn't listed anymore.


Question:

1) How can I substitute this ActiveX control under MS Access 2003?

Thanks.

I just opened Access 2003 and found the Microsoft Common Dialog Control Verson 6.0 listed a being available.  Thus there must be something else going on on your PC.  Do you have other versions of Office installed (I have Office 97, 2000, XP AND 2003 all at the same time - I need to support all version, as we have customers using all of these versions)

an alternative to using that control is to use the win32 api directly.
