Missing: Microsoft DAO 2.5/3.5 Compatibility Library

I'm loading an Access database I've been using at work on to my home computer and I'm getting this message.

I know how to select References, but where can I find/download one that is "missing."

Is it available as a download from Microsoft.  I'm running XP professional, Access 2002(?)

Thanks for your help.

the 'missing' entry is totally un-needed for you.  It is an OLD dll, that was provided to bridge between Access 2(about 10 years old version of Access- which used the Olde version of DAO - version 2.5) and Access 95/97  All current versions of Access use either DAO 3.51 or 3.6 and Access 2000+ uses ADO, and  you should not have anything that uses DAO 2.5.  You can safely UNSELECT that 'missing' DLL.
